Zack Fowler Day DeclarationJanuary 24-- At its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night January 15th, the Toombs County Commission unanimously signed a declaration recognizing Thursday, January 24th as Zack Fowler Day in Toombs County. January 24th was selected as he will be inducted into the Georgia Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in Athens.

Toombs County Commission Chairman David Sikes stated, “When we found out that Zack Fowler was getting inducted into the Georgia Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and me being a Georgia Dog and men like Larry Munson being in there, and now all of a sudden Zack Fowler one of our local heroes is in there, we were thrilled.”

Sikes added, “Zack is always honest, has integrity, and always tells people the truth which is what we need. It doesn’t matter if he’s reporting here in Toombs County or Montgomery County or wherever his travels take him, he’s always honest and fair with it. We’re extremely glad that we have a Hall of Famer in our community.”

Zack was completely surprised with the honor. “You never see something like this coming,” Fowler said. “I’m very blessed because I’ve always enjoyed the work I’ve been able to do and that God gave me the ability to do both in the Army and when I came home to Vidalia in broadcasting. It’s my first love except for my wife and family, the good Lord of course, and my bulldog.”

Fowler added, “To be honored by the broadcasters of Georgia is just something that I never aspired to do. I’m just lucky to enjoy doing what I do and then to have my home county proclaim the 24th a day in my honor it’s just overwhelming. To receive that and to go to Athens where I went to college and get a big pat on the back, it’s going to be a big day for the Fowler family. Our sons are going to be there, my wife will be there along with a lot of friends and family.”

When I started out as a teenage disc jockey I never imagined that something like this could happen,” said Fowler.
