About the Edwin V. Johnson Society

Ed JohnsonEdwin V. Johnson was WHAV’s longest serving employee, beginning only a few years after the Haverhill Gazette placed the radio station on the air in 1947. Over a 34-year career—and three station owners—he demonstrated a commitment to objectivity, accuracy and truth in reporting. Mr. Johnson nearly simultaneously inspired several generations of students as instructor of English and public speaking at Haverhill High School from 1953 to 1989. He is credited with launching the careers of a number of students, including Tom Bergeron.

Members of the Edwin V. Johnson Society have the distinction of being WHAV’s most generous and inspirational supporters, ensuring Mr. Johnson’s legacy continues.

Your privacy is very important. WHAV will not sell, rent or give your personal information to anyone.

    I was blessed to have the opportunity to work with Edwin at WHAV from July 1981 to May 1985. A real gentleman and a very funny guy with some great stories.

    Mr. Johnson was an incredible person. I took his public speaking class in High School. Helped me to overcome my fair of speaking in front of a group. He also helped me out in so many ways , that I am truly grateful for. He was a genuine person who would do anything for anyone.

      Not the worst idea I ever heard. But, I’m guessing that the club will not be filled with Groveland firefighters

    Edwin Johnson was my teacher of Public Speaking at HHS. How fortunate were his students and his audience.
