AC WSLQ (Q99)/Roanoke, VA afternoon personality Helen Powers is exiting after 25 years with the station to spend more time with family, effective September 27. She served in afternoons on WSLQ and as Promotions Director of WSLQ, WLNI and WFIR. Powers' previous stops include WIXY/Champaign IL, WLZR (now WHGQ)/Milwaukee, KBER/Salt Lake City, WWWV & WZGN/Charlottesville VA and WYYD/Roanoke.

Powers said, "This industry has allowed me to live all over the U.S., meet many talented people and serve many charities and communities. But I now have the opportunity to spend time with my husband of 22 years, Ron, and we are going to finally live full-time on our sailboat and travel throughout the Atlantic and beyond. I would like to thank Rob Kelley Brennan, Saga's Ed Christian and Steve Goldstein for giving me my start so many years ago."

She added, "I am the luckiest person in this business to have worked for Wheeler Media President and owner Leonard Wheeler, and my replacement will be walking into a company that is so rare in this business now. You will have all the tools and staff you need to be a success with listeners and clients."
