While heading the station - Tom Davis AKA Dr. Love developed new exciting programming that dramatically increased WRFG's listening audience.
This radio veteran created such programs as 'World Party' (music played from around the world) and Mr. Davis programmed hip hop music on a daily basis at the station. He was the first to do so in Atlanta. Creating the opportunity for hip hop to be exposed daily on radio - provided broadcast experience for such now famous names as Chaka Zulu, Lil' Jon, DJ Doc, Tosha Love and many others who got their training under Tom Davis. Before leaving WRFG - Tom Davis spearheaded the national campaign to raise the station's power to 100,000 watts.
As an internet radio pioneer - Dr. Love - as he is often referred to by those close to him - established one of the very first internet radio stations in the USA.
