These six Greater Media Charlotte All Stars are making Greater Media greater:
Kary “Doc” Bowser – Producer/Matt & Ramona Show/WLNK-FM
Doc is doing outstanding work! He is always there to help, silently solving problems and never complaining—he is truly a wonderful, smart and creative person to be around. His ideas are wonderful for the show. We are so fortunate to have an innovator like him on the Matt and Ramona Show and at Greater Media.
Marissa Anthony- Sales Assistant
Marissa sets the bar high. She is someone who has picked up and pitched in multiple areas. She has jumped on board with enthusiasm, excitement and a great attitude. She gets the job done and will be great for the sales team.
Billy Black – Imaging Director
There is no one better at his job than Billy. He is on top of every commercial and always there to help when needed, even at 11 o’clock at night! He does what is necessary to make the client happy and is willing to put in extra time if things are behind. He is the difference maker in how our stations sound on air. Billy is a huge asset to our radio team
Jenn Jackson- Senior Account Executive and Syndication Director, Bob & Sheri Show.
She has taken the reins on creating a brand-new event for Bob & Sheri and 107.9 FM The Link to hang their hat on. RV Crazy was a success on many levels and she was a believer from the beginning. When we started the RV project, we weren’t sure we could pull it off, but Jenn certainly believed in it and did it well. She is a complete believer in everything she does and her passion shows through everything she is involved in.
Karen Davis – Financial Coordinator
Karen is doing a brilliant job! She has been a key player in stepping in when she is needed, in multiple roles. She is very enthusiastic about our finances, our events, our budgets and our radio stations as a whole. She truly goes above and beyond.
Ed Nixon – Producer/WBT AM/FM
Sometimes you don’t know he is there, but he is handling it ALL for WBT AM/FM. He quietly hums his tune while being the key instrument to get Charlotte’s Morning News on the air every morning and being a key part of getting weekend programs on the air. His strength is responding well in pressure situations, while willing to help others and solve problems. He is driven and motivated in his work and never misses a beat.
