GREENEVILLE, Tenn. - An iconic voice in Greene County is turning off her microphone on Tuesday. Maxine Humphreys has spent the last 61 years on-air for WGRV.
Fans and family members poured into the station on Monday for one last chance to see Humphreys behind her news desk.
Humphreys took the air in 1953 and has been reading the news at 12:30 p.m. every day since.
She leaves the job to evening radio host Elizabeth Haygood-Johnson.
"I pass it on with no regrets," Humphreys told News 5. "I have no jealousy or anything in my heart, none at all and she will do a great job."
Humphreys told us right now she's resolved and calm about her retirement but may start to feel sad in a few days when it all sinks in.
