Matt Phillips

Anderson, S.C.

Owner of WRIX Radio, Matt Phillips was a pivotal community force in turning public opinion toward supporting a worker's memorial in 1985. At first he was against it, but his audience picked up the subject and wouldn't let it go. He eventually did a live broadcast of the memorial from the Dogwood Park in Honea Path.
