Kenny The Mac Miles worked at 107.3 JAMZ for 13 years (2000-2013), and spent 32 years in radio overall! Now he’s retired, with a honey-do list on a daily basis. (He says he actually knows how to cook now.) His wife is Gerry Anne Miles, aka Ms. Ann, and they have two sons: Corey and Joshua.
Reflecting on his time at 107.3 JAMZ, he said, “I enjoyed serving the Upstate SC radio market. I appreciate the passion the listeners had for JAMZ and still do. The various on-site locations and interacting with the listening audience. It was a real treat. I was happy to say I was a part of a Marconi-winning radio station and the various other awards we won throughout the years.”
When asked about an event we did that stood out to him, he remembered “the JAMZ Family Reunions we had! It brought the community together in such a major way. The picnics, barbecue cook-offs, main stage concerts – was truly an awesome event to be a part of.”
Kenny had this to say as well: “As I reflect on my time at this legendary station, I’m filled with a lot of gratitude. I’m thankful to God for enjoying a wonderful broadcast career and ending it at JAMZ in Greenville. Since leaving the air in May 2013, I’ve experienced a challenging medical situation. I had a major operation in 2014 in which over 60% of my liver was re-sected. (I have what Walter Peyton [legendary Bears football player] had, but unfortunately his condition turned into cancer which ended his life.) I’m grateful that although I’ve had several operations and procedures, as well as lengthy hospital stays, my condition is not cancer and I’m doing great. Getting my yearly check-ups, having great doctors, and having God in my life truly made, and is making, a difference. My condition is called PCS (Primary Scherosing Cholargitis). In sharing his, I hope folks get their annual check-ups because it truly is a matter of life and death!”
