DIGITY MEDIA Country WRNS/GREENVILLE, NC PD/MD/afternoons TOMMY GARRETT will be leaving the station due to personal reasons. His last day will be FRIDAY, JULY 24th. GARRETT joined WRNS in 2006 as MD before being elevated to PD in FEBRUARY 2011 (NET NEWS 4/4/11). In the meantime, WRNS APD/middayer CARLETTA BLAKE has been named Interim PD, and morning co-host CRYSTAL LEGENDS will assume the MD post. BLAKE has been with the station since 2008 and LEGENDS since 2012 (NET NEWS 10/8/12). The afternoon shift will be filled internally, with an announcement coming at a later date.
“We are saddened that circumstances make it impossible for TOMMY to continue in his role at WRNS," said GM LARRY WEISS. "His personality and voice has been a fixture in thousands of EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA households for the past 10 years. Our staff and family of listeners wish TOMMY and his family good luck and good fortune. The entire WRNS staff was blessed to have worked with him. At the same time, our team in place is more than capable to meet the challenges ahead and capitalize on the many opportunities we have in this market.”
