During a 10-week period, listeners were asked to nominate exceptional women via fax, mail, or e- mail. Every Friday morning from August 15 through November 4, two exceptional women were chosen and their names were announced on the Oldies 100 morning show.“When I heard my name announced as one of these exceptional women, I was honored,” said Ms. Turton. “Giving back to the communities we serve has always been part of Diane Turton, Realtors’ philosophy. To be honored personally for my commitment to helping others is an unexpected surprise. I want to thank WJRZ radio and their listeners, as well as my entire team as well as our loyal clients.
