My phone has been ringing off the hook. There have been major changes to the Morning Team lineup at Oldies 93.1. Long time newsman Edward R. Snow is gone and LEE(Anne) PETTY is now the King of News in the Triad. Petty was at 101.1 WZTK and now she will call the signals at 93.1. The Morning Team also put Jill Dyson on waviers and brought the Big Man Randall C. Bliss to the early show to join in along with the Quarterback Max McGann. McGann is the husband of former local Football Handicapper Bubba McGann formerly known as Pam McGann.

Huge shakeups at Oldies 93.1 and since RC Bliss has moved to the mornings Boomer VonCannon is now doing the afternoon drive show. RCB calls most of the lineup shots at 93.1 and we will will be tracking the station to give the new mid-day personality name to you as soon as they quit playing “Cisco Kid was a Friend of Mine”. Don Moore may have the 10am-3pm slot revealed for us before days end.

Boomer may be the top Talent on 93.1 which he calls Motown and Rock n Roll Favorites/Oldies 93. Gary Voncannon(Boomer) played high school football for the Asheboro Blue Comets and he was headed to UNC-Chapel Hill by way of Fork Union Military but somewhere along the way Gary C. got on the Radio and he never lost another game. Gary was a receiver and now he is an operator.

Oldies 93.1 WMQX used to carry UNC-Chapel Hill Football games back when they were Z 93 located in Winston- Salem proper, and their leader was Jim Quinn. The Tar Heels had a good following on 93.1 with Quinn and his Morning Army.

The News Legend Edward R. Snow will missed by thousands of loyal listeners who enjoyed Ed’s delivery and the way he integrated SPORTS into his Newscast. Snow was known to tie one on at any of the Local lakes or ponds and he became one of our State’s most trusted voices for Fishing and Water Sports.

We hope that LEE(Anne) PETTY will give the audience more than her Award-Winning reports on hardcore news and NASCAR and that LAP will put the brakes on some of her NASCAR and bring us the inside on the ACC, Grasshoppers, High School Sports and some lucky Fishng Spots or Fishing Holes that were the tradmark of Ed Snow. LAP has been around the Local Track before, having been in Burlington with WZTK and before that in High Point with Bill Flynn and WMAG. LAP, on Oldies 93, could be, the start of something big here in the Triad but we’ll have to wait and see, just ask Dee B.(Dee Brockwell). Oldies 93.1 WMQX is an ENTERCOM owned Radio Station.

More breaking news…. WZTK 101.1 will have Wake Forest Demon Deacon Football and Basketball coming your way starting this Fall. WFU on 101.1 and they’re calling it “Static Free ACC”.

    There are not many news men like Ed anymore, just a few weeks ago a wild gunman was on the loose at Grimsley HS and Ed did a live report from the scene, he was risking life and limb to bring us the news and RCB kicks him to the curb, Ed will be back better than ever.
