The Georgia radio legend passed away on April 28, at age 68. He had served in various capacities at a string of stations in the Macon market for over 50 years. Most recently, Leverette had formed a partnership with longtime friend and co-worker John Timms to start a new, local radio station in Macon: The Fox 94.7 FM.
Leverette was known for his mentoring of young broadcasters and, in this spirit, his family has established the Oscar Leverette Memorial Broadcast Journalism Scholarship Fund to continue his mentoring legacy in middle Georgia.
