Every year in March, WBT AM/FM Host John Hancock has a special broadcast celebrating Father’s Day.
It’s not the traditional holiday in June, but one sparked by the passing of his father, where listeners call in honoring and remembering their fathers.
For nearly 20 years, on or around March 16, Hancock opens the phones and listeners share their stories.
For the second year, the weekend of the broadcast, WBT AM/FM held John Hancock’s Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast, a morning filled with fathers and their sons, daughters and family, with the proceeds to benefit the Charlotte Men’s Shelter.
Listeners enjoyed pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice for their donation. Hosted at a local church and staffed by area Boy Scouts, the breakfast raised more than $2,000 and provided the shelter with 10 brand-new pairs of work boots. Listeners not only enjoyed the company of the WBT AM/FM hosts but also that of Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera.

For the third year, John Hancock, 3pm – 6p on News Talk 1110, WBT, along with Harris Teeter and Jif have teamed up for Peanut Butter N’ July to help benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina this summer.
High on protein, peanut butter is one of the most valuable commodities for a food bank and is one of the most requested items for those who benefit from their services. This summer, in preparation of this need, WBT has launched a campaign to bring attention to the importance of this product.
Beginning July 1st, look for donation bins set up at 37 participating Harris Teeter Stores throughout Mecklenburg County and around the Charlotte area and stop by to donate a plastic jar of fresh unopened peanut butter. Each Saturday during July, John Hancock will be on hand at one of the participating stores helping to collect peanut butter and spreading the word about the cause.
