CHARLOTTE market veteran BO THOMPSON is returning to GREATER MEDIA Talk WBT-A-F/CHARLOTTE as co-host of "CHARLOTTE'S MORNING NEWS," taking over alongside STACEY SIMMS in the slot vacated by longtime co-host AL GARDNER on MARCH 19th. THOMPSON has most recently served as producer of WBT sister Hot AC WLKN (107.9 THE LINK) team MATT HARRIS and RAMONA HOLLOWAY's "FOX NEWS EDGE" on crosstown FOX affiliate WCCB-TV (FOX CHARLOTTE) and was on WBT's production team since 1990, serving as Creative Services Dir. in 1997-2005. He also worked on crosstown CBS RADIO Sports WFNZ-A's BILL ROSINSKI show and as PD/host at WDYT-A in 2006-08.
"BO is a great fit for CHARLOTTE'S MORNING NEWS," said WBT PD CARL EAST. "He worked with us years ago in many capacities, left to get his on-air chops and now he's back, with a link to our past joining us in our journey into the future."
"I began my radio career at WBT 22 years ago, and this is my home," said THOMPSON. "I always knew I'd be back one day. It's an honor to carry on the torch from AL GARDNER. Many of my radio idols have held this job. I can't wait to be a part of CMN's next chapter."
