The CHARLOTTE OBSERVER's MARK WASHBURN offered an update on former GREATER MEDIA Talk WBT-A-F/CHARLOTTE morning co-host STACEY SIMMS in the paper's weekly "Starting Over" column, reporting that SIMMS has landed at crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Adult Hits WLKO (102.9 THE LAKE) in a promotional position, serving as the station's face to the community and handling promotions, commercials, social media and public appearances.
SIMMS told WASHBURN that she left WBT due to family concerns -- feeling that she was missing out on too much time with her children -- but was contacted on FACEBOOK by THE LAKE PD DARLA THOMAS, who is a fellow graduate of SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY and who did not know SIMMS but got in touch with her when the news of her departure from WBT surfaced. SIMMS started the part-time position at THE LAKE in MAY.
