Spirit FM host spends last morning on air

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE, VA -

It's a bittersweet morning for a local radio host on the air for her final morning show today.

Spirit FM host Linda Armstrong and her husband Barry are retiring. The two founded the radio ministry in 1994. Linda and Barry joined WSLS 10's Dawn Jefferies for a live Skype interview moments before her broadcast.

Spirit FM has worked together with WSLS through the years on many relief efforts, including our Holiday Haul last December to collect toys in order to make sure children impacted by Superstorm Sandy had them for Christmas. It was during the Holiday Haul, the Armstrongs challenged its listeners to donate $500 in order to get WSLS 10's Dawn Jefferies to wear the Spirit FM "ugly sweater" on the air for her own broadcast.

The challenge was met and Dawn held up her end of the bargain, wearing the sweater throughout her broadcast.
