The Anchormen Announce Changes

September 25, 2020 — Asheboro, NC — Effective immediately, The Anchormen have announced the departure of lead singer, Nathan Potts. Nathan has served as lead for The Anchormen for several years. During his tenure with The Anchormen, Potts also managed a construction business which has taken up an increasing amount of his time while not on the road. Due to this increasing time commitment, Nathan has decided to pursue his business on a full-time basis.

“Nathan has been a long-time friend and I wish him the best in his future endeavors,” stated Anchormen owner, Tim Bullins. “We know the one thing we can count on in the Southern Gospel world is change, but we will never let that stop us from spreading the message of love, hope, and eternal salvation.”

Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
