Long-time radio personality Allan Dempsey is hanging up the headphones and is set to retire after 30 years at WTLN (AM 990-FM 101.5 The WORD) in Orlando. Dempsey has been broadcasting for over 50 years from New York to the Space Coast and landed in Orlando at WTLN in 1991. His passion for spreading the Gospel has made a great impact in Central Florida and countless lives through radio, jail ministries, street witnessing and his photography.

Dempsey said, "Growing up in the Baltimore area, all I wanted to do was play in my band and to be on the radio. Now after much prayer and contemplation, the time is right to move on. It will give me the opportunity to have more 'one-on-one' deep conversations with God like I used to, and do a bit of traveling around the country."

Salem Media Group Orlando General Manager Tim Robisch stated, "We wish Allan the best after a distinguished career serving the Central Florida community at our Salem properties. It's a testament to his commitment and professionalism to have been part of our team for 30 years."

SMG Orlando Director of Operation and Programming Pete Paquette commented, "Allan has touched the lives of so many here in Central Florida. Allan has made a difference in the Kingdom. He will be truly missed."
