WGCL is proud to present Inside Outdoors with Buddy Bill and Don Jordan. Inside Outdoors gives you everything you need to know about the outdoors every Saturday from 6-7am. A fun and informative way to begin the weekend as you get ready to enjoy all that the outdoors in Monroe and surrounding counties. Inside Outdoors is supported by Morrisons Appliance and Service.
As a journalist, Don Jordan has written his weekly newspaper outdoors column, Inside Outdoors, since 1973 when he worked for the now-defunct Bloomington IndyCourier-Tribune. The column has appeared in many other newspapers since 1975. He has been an active member of the Outdoor Writers Assn. of America since 1973.
Jordan served as a corresponding editor of Environment magazine and has written for a wide variety of outdoor, sports and environmental publications. He has received reporting awards from the Audubon Society, the Izaak Walton League and United Press International. He was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for his investigative reporting on PCBs discharged in Bloomington, Ind., by Westinghouse Electric Corp. As an educator, Jordan taught journalism and anthropology at Indiana University and the University of Wisconsin at Superior, and was a faculty member at Indiana University’s College For Gifted and Talented Children. Don now co-hosts a broadcast version of his column, Inside Outdoors Radio, on WGCL AM 1370 & FM 96.1 in Bloomington, Indiana.
Indy is a Vietnam vet. He served with the 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) and the 173rd Airborne Brigade as an infantry lieutenant and commander of the 46th Public Information Detachment at Bong Son in 1970. He received the Bronze Star and Army Commendaton medals.
Buddy Bill Moser
Buddy Bill is a local angler, and hunter, who ran “Buddy Bill’s Bait Barn” for many years, a staple bait shop for Lake Monroe. Bill was a dairy farmer in his early life, and has worked for the Indiana DNR, Dept. of Highways, and served on local school boards. Bill’s experience with hunting and fishing is a lifelong, and his knowledge of the area is acute. He is well known by just about everyone, and goes to Wyoming often to hunt deer, elk, and antelope as well as fish. Buddy Bill has given his “Lake report” on the radio for many years, starting on WFHB community radio, and eventually hosting “Outdoors Today” for seven years on WGCL with Phil Rambo. Eventually Phil left the show, and was replaced with Don Jordan, and now back on WGCL as “Inside Outdoors”.
Inside Outdoors airs Saturday from 6-7am.
