Local radio personality goes into Hall of Fame

Famed local radio host and Charleston and Colleton Counties DJ Miles Crosby is being honored for his radio career, as he is being inducted into the Lowcountry Music Hall of Fame.
The honor is based on nominations.
Crosby, a Walterboro native, and current Colleton County resident, will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame on Oct. 20th at 1 p.m., at the Trident Technical College campus amphitheater. Charleston-area Meteorologist and television personality Rob Fowler will be the master of ceremonies for the induction of Crosby.
“I am so very honored by this,” Crosby said, on Sunday.
Crosby made the announcement public via his personal Facebook page last week.
He is currently a realtor in the greater Charleston area. However, his nationally-known radio career began in Walterboro in 1976. It took him into a beloved and famed radio character known as “Uncle Miles” on the former Charleston-area radio station, WAVE 96.1.
Crosby later became the lead DJ on the Walterboro-based WALI radio channel.
He has not retired from the business, as he still moonlights as a DJ and radio personality at various times for different area stations. He says he is currently considering going back into the business as a radio personality on a Charleston-area station, and he continues to do voice-over work and on-camera interviews for PRTC, the Palmetto Rural Telephone Cooperative in Walterboro. In these locally-aired television packages and interviews, Crosby features some of Colleton County’s biggest hot spots, such as the ACE Basin, Donnelly Wildlife Management and Bear Island, an undeveloped 12-acre wildlife habitat in the rural ACE Basin.
“I love doing this work,” he said, speaking about his television and radio spots with PRTC.
“I’m not going to say I’m retired from radio because I love it. It’s in my blood,” he said.
Crosby said he is hoping that some of his former radio friends and co-workers will fly into South Carolina for his induction into the Lowcountry Music Hall of Fame. He has also invited Colleton County residents to attend the event, saying his career has only been positive because of the public support he has received. Additionally, Crosby has also invited bands who he has worked with in the past, and whose music he promoted on-air.
