CBS RADIO Sports radio 610 WFNZ-A (THE FAN)/CHARLOTTE is letting afternoons co-host MARC JAMES man the show solo, with the departure of TAYLOR ZARZOUR after their last show together TODAY. ZARZOUR leaves for another opportunity, but will continue to remain a part of the WFNZ family by calling into the show with MARC weekly on The Drive.
“I’ll be forever grateful for the opportunity that (OM) DJ STOUT and (Market Manager) BILL SCHOENING gave me at WFNZ,” said ZARZOUR. “I am extremely proud of the success that we had in my three years on the show and have no doubt MARC and the crew will continue to grow the audience. I am excited about my next opportunity but will continue to be a part of the WFNZ family.”
“Although it is bittersweet to see TAYLOR go, he has done a great job for us and we will miss his talent and professionalism,” OM/PD DJ STOUT said. “We’re excited for MARC to take on this opportunity. He is a top-notch talent and we look forward to him taking The Drive to the next level.”
ZARZOUR and JAMES have been co-hosting The Drive afternoons on WFNZ since they were paired in JANUARY 2011 alongside other the show’s other members THE Q.C.B., HITMAN and JAYWEEZIE.
“TAYLOR ZARZOUR is probably the hardest working person is sports talk radio. He made me a better host, but more importantly a better man,” JAMES said. “I look forward to taking Sports Radio 610 WFNZ (THE FAN) to unparalleled heights in the future. CHARLOTTE is hands-down one of the best sports towns in AMERICA and we will continue to make CHARLOTTE proud to call WFNZ the best Sports Talk station in the city.”
