Longtime Wlea Host Beth Moore Has Died

May 6, 2022

With sadness, the family of Beth Mack Moore announces her passing on Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at Taylor Health Center in Bath, NY.

A trailblazer as a working mother and female broadcaster in the 1960’s, Beth embarked on a decades-long career in local radio, beginning as a secretary at WWHG Radio in Hornell and WFSR Radio in Bath. She took time away to raise her children, then, seeking a way to help the Hornell community during the flood of 1972, she volunteered her services at WLEA radio, tracking and verifying rosters at area evacuation sites as well as updating injury and casualty developments 24/7 through this crisis. She was asked to stay on at WLEA and for the next 22 years, enjoyed a remarkable career as a local news reporter, and as an account clerk serving the Hornell, Bath and Wellsville areas. Beginning in the late 1970s’s she found her true stride as the host of the hugely popular 9 AM “The Beth Moore Show.”
