Back in MAY (NET NEWS 5/20), ALL ACCESS reported that after 13 years at CBS Top 40 WNKS (KISS 95.1)/CHARLOTTE, morning duo ACE & T. J. have decided not to continue with their show, turning down a new deal with the station. Their last show was MAY 20th.
Now, after having sit out a non-compete, the duo have reached agreement with CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WHQC (CHANNEL 961), and will begin there on JANUARY 5th. They will continue with their syndicated offering, basing it from WHQC.
Producer PETE HERRICK will remain with them, along with sidekicks BREEZEKAT and RIGGINS.
"We are happy to welcome ACE & TJ to the CLEAR CHANNEL family," said CLEAR CHANNEL Market Mgr. CHARLIE WILKINSON. "They round out and compliment CLEAR CHANNEL's strong lineup of talent that includes PAUL SCHADT on 96.9 THE KAT, The Big Show with JOHN BOY and BILL on 99.7 THE FOX, WOODY and WILCOX in the morning on 106.5 THE END and VALENTINE on LITE 102.9."
"To add ACE & TJ to our roster of talent is exciting for our team," said OM STEVE GEOFFERIES. "It will be a special moment when we reunite them with their CHARLOTTE audience."
"CLEAR CHANNEL is the industry leader and we are ecstatic to be a part of the team in CHARLOTTE," said ACE & TJ. "Broadcasting in CHARLOTTE reunites us with our loyal radio family who have stayed connected via our streams and social network."
ACE & TJ will unseat the simulcast of BROTHA FRED's morning show, which is based out of CHICAGO, and will contimue on CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WKSC (103.5 KISS-FM).
