After three years at CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KHFI (THE NEW 967 KISS-FM)/AUSTIN as APD/MD/afternoon drive, the very talented BROTHA FRED has resigned and he's headed for mornings at CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Rhythmic WIBT (96.1 THE BEAT)/CHARLOTTE.
FRED told ALL ACCESS, "This marks a new highlight in my career to join (PD) ROB WAGMAN, the management team of (RVP/MM) MORGAN BOHANNON, (RVPP) BRUCE LOGAN, the incredible on-air players at 96.1 THE BEAT and having the opportunity to wake up CHARLOTTE each day. My time at KHFI has been a rewarding experience and my hat goes off to PD JAY SHANNON, and the entire staff for three amazing years. I'm very excited about this new challenge, and stretching the bounds of creativity."
WAGMAN told ALL ACCESS, "BROTHA FRED represents the future of our Industry. I interviewed many great talents for this position looking for something specific. I found it when BROTHA FRED flew in. He came, he performed and he conquered. I have great faith that BRO FRO will bring morning drive at the BEAT to the top spot, matching the rest of our dayparts."
