Allan Miller has been an integral part of broadcasting and community service in South Carolina for over 40 years, and was recently recognized with induction into the prestigious South Carolina Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame. Miller is part of the WRHI and Interstate 107 sales team; spearheads the company’s extensive live sports and country music coverage; and is the catalyst for most of the station’s hallmark promotions.
Miller originally launched his career as a disc-jockey and race promoter in Virginia and Darlington, SC. He still cracks open the microphone at least once a week to host the “WRHI General Store Radio Auction,” heard every Friday morning at 9 a.m.
Miller and Manning Kimmel are Managing Partners and co-owners of Our Three Sons Broadcasting. 2014 marks the partner’s 30th year together as successful business and community leaders. “We consider ourselves an advertising company first and I know the key to any success we’ve had has been our ability to broadcast a strong local product that delivers great advertising opportunities for our area businesses,” Miller said.
While Miller has been a state and national leader for Radio, he has never forgotten that most successful stations have deep roots in their local communities and have a passion for public service. As an active member of the York County community, Miller has emceed hundreds of charity events/activities and has served on dozens of civic boards and foundations. He is a past president and chairman of the South Carolina Broadcasters Association, the Come-See-Me Board and Festival, Christmasville Board and Festival, the York County Culture and Heritage Commission and the American Cancer Society.
During his long career, Miller has been honored with many industry and civic awards. He was recently recognized by Radio Ink magazine as one of “America’s Best Broadcasters” and was a recipient of the 2009 Come-See-Me Festival’s Community Service Award. Miller is the current chairman of the South Carolina Broadcaster’s Foundation Scholarship Committee and the Vernon Grant Advisory Committee. He also currently serves on the board of directors for the SC Broadcasters Association and the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce. In 2012, Miller was named the York County Regional Chamber Businessperson of the Year. He received possibly his highest honor in January of 2009, when he was enshrined into the South Carolina Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Miller became only the 30th member in state history and the first from York County.
Allan and his wife Rovenia, have three adult children, a daughter-in-law, son-in-law and four grandchildren.
