Brad & Britt New Afternoon Team at WBT
June 11, 2012
Greater Media announces Brad & Britt have been named as the new afternoon drive team at WBT AM/FM in Charlotte, North Carolina. They will begin their new show from 3pm-6pm on July 2nd, 2012.
Brad Krantz and Britt Whitmire are no strangers to radio. Krantz is a former WBT afternoon drive host and was part of the Spires & Krantz on-air team from 1999 to 2003.
Brad, who is originally from Ohio & Britt, who is a North Carolina native, most recently hosted the morning show on WZTK-FM in Greensboro from 2004 until earlier this year and did afternoon drive on WPTF 850 AM in Raleigh and WSJS 600 AM in Winston Salem.
“These guys bring a great sense of energy and fun to the air. Those who have been in Charlotte for a while already know what Brad is capable of,” said Carl East, Program Director of WBT AM/FM. “They are very clever observers of the issues of the day, whether they are local or national. The audience is going to love engaging them.”
“I am excited about working for the legendary WBT,” said Whitmire. “Anyone from the Carolinas knows how important this station is and it’s a dream come true for me. I am especially thankful to Carl East and Rick Feinblatt for all their help and leadership. Greater Media is a fantastic company and I’m just psyched to be on the team.”
“It’s difficult to put into words just how happy I am to be returning to WBT after nine years, but let me try, in as simple a way as possible… it’s great to be home again,” said Krantz. “Listeners and the advertising community have always known what a special radio station it is. Britt and I are especially honored to once again be a part of it.”
