wrote, "I was hired [at WAKY, Louisville] by Jim Brand, who was program director and
morning jock at the time. In fact it was Jim who gave me the name 'Jack Daniels.' He was
driving me around town on my first night, giving me a quick tour of the city. As we drove
along the freeway, we'd pass a Jack Daniels whiskey billboard about every quarter of a
mile it seemed. I remember him asking if I was a teetotaler; after telling him 'no,' he
asked what I thought about using Jack Daniels as an air name. He reminded me that since
the Kentucky bourbon was owned by Early Times, and Early Times was headquartered in
Louisville, the name would be easily and quickly recognizable for ratings purposes. Done
