1979 was 35 years ago. That was one family among many that he made a difference in their lives. He did a lot of good over the years. He certainly made his life count right up til the end. This world needs more men like Luther.

I have never watched, or heard Luther Masingill but I have heard of him for years. I work in the broadcast industry and have heard many great stories about this kind and gentle legend. Masingill embodied what every broadcaster should aspire to be. Chattanooga is a better place to live because of his dedication to his community. RIP Luther....we hardly knew ye...

Luther was a wonderful man and a true southern gentleman. Luther is the last of a generation of true hard working Americans. He was a fine example of a man to measure your own life by. If you are half as kind as Luther you are a great person yourself. Luther I will miss that distinct radio voice for the rest of my life. RIP Luther Masingill

I used to work overnights for 92.3 several years ago. Every morning, Luther brought me breakfast and always had a big smile and a warm greeting. If he had a critique, it was given with kindness and it was always clear that he was trying to help me improve. I never heard a harsh word from him. He was such a gentleman.

My deepest sympathy to the Masingill family and the entire news team 12 family(especially Chip Chapman with whom Luther had a special bond. When I was a small child I watched Luther everyday and he was a movie star to me here in Etowah, TN. That was 60 yrs ago. The noon news will not be the same without him. He will be missed at that time everyday of the week by my family. R.I.P. Luther

It has been a long time since I have lived in Chattanooga, but always enjoyed listening to Luther everytime I came home on leave. He will certainly be missed, and impossible to ever replace. My thoughts and prayers go to his family, and may the Lord of all accept him into the Enteranl kingdom with open arms. Very Respectfully R. Lee Linebarger SFC (Ret), USA
