A voice that was familiar to many listeners in Chattanooga for years, WSKZ KZ-106 Midday Host and Assistant Program Director Kelly McCoy died Tuesday at the age of 58.

McCoy’s 35-year career in the Scenic City began at Chattanooga’s first NewsRadio station, WZRA, before moving to WGOW-AM as Programming Secretary then on-air host at the Top 40 music station, to classic rock WFXS, and then to classic rock KZ-106 where she became the area’s #1 midday radio host for two decades, according to the station.

McCoy was deeply involved in the community, and was a strong advocate for animals. Her Pet Project found homes for hundreds of dogs through the Humane Educational Society.
