Two days after its best ratings ever, CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WEND (106.5 THE END)/CHARLOTTE fills afternnoons with CHUCK "DZL" THOMPSON, who moves from the same slot at crosshall sister Top 40/Rhythmic WIBT (96.1 THE BEAT).
DZL replaces KRISTEN HONEYCUTT, who exited two months ago.
WEND PD JACK DANIEL told ALL ACCESS, "After an exhaustive search of over 200 candidates and some unbelievable talent, DZL fit the bill of the description in my original ad and was in my backyard all the time. He has been doing weekends for me for about three months and over that time blew me away anytime he was on the air!
"After 14 years as either host or co-host of THE END's afternoon show, I will move to a mid-afternoon 'mini-shift.'"
