April 1, 2013 at 4:14 AM (PT)
DAVIS MEDIA/HOMETOWN WILMINGTON MEDIA Talk WLTT-WNTB (THE BIG TALKER)/WILMINGTON, NC's PORT CITY NEWS reports that the station is repositioning as all-News "PORT CITY RADIO" with live local anchors 6a-6p, effective TODAY, APRIL 1st.
CHAD ADAMS, who hosted mornings at the station, has retired; PD AIMEE BOWEN will anchor mornings, sister Rock WBNE (103.7 THE BONE) morning co-host JIM WHITMEYER will add PORT CITY RADIO midday anchor duties, and J.T. MCVICKER will anchor afternoons. Local brokered talk shows will continue to air at 6p, followed by the DAVE RAMSEY syndicated financial talk show (moving from middays) and RADIO AMERICA's DR. JOY BROWNE. DIAL GLOBAL's OVERNIGHT AMERICA remains for overnights, and THE WALL STREET JOURNAL THIS MORNING continues for 5-6a.
“PORT CITY RADIO is the perfect complement to PORT CITY DAILY," said GM BEAU GUNN. "With the departure of CHAD, who is truly irreplaceable—not just because of his role in the community, but for the respectful exchange of ideas he was able to create and foster on his show—we thought it was time to move in a different direction. We decided to give WILMINGTON something it was missing—all-news radio with a focus on local news, sports, traffic and weather.”
