MBA Community Mourns Loss of Alumnus and Friend Skip Woolwine ('76)
The MBA community is mourning the loss of 1976 alumnus Skip Woolwine who passed away on Thursday afternoon. For the past seventeen years, Skip served as the executive producer for the MBA Football radio broadcasts. Skip had a recognizable voice and was a hard working and talented radio producer and personality. He was responsible for starting the MBA football live web streams and for the overall quality of the broadcasts.
Prior to his work at MBA, Skip had a successful radio career and was a leader in the creation of the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame. Long-time Nashvillians will remember him under his radio name "Michael O'Shea" who was an on-air talent at AM 650 WSM. Skip was also a skilled guitar player performing with his band Fade to Black which often featured Clifford Curry on vocals.
Skip loved MBA and was proud of his two sons Hicks and Hunter who were recent graduates. His youngest son Hunter now serves on the staff at MBA in the tech office. Skip is survived by his wife Trish and two sons.
