Brotha Fred, who leads the morning show on WIBT-FM (96.1) [Charlotte], is moving to a Chicago top 40 station.
Brotha Fred, whose real name is Christopher Frederick, arrived in Charlotte in July 2006 from a station in Austin, Texas.
He will continue to be heard on WIBT-FM, where his show from Chicago will be simulcast.
In Chicago, Frederick will be based at WKSC-FM. Like WIBT-FM, it is owned by Clear Channel Radio…..
Local inserts and content will be supplied for listeners in Charlotte and the two other cities the “AM Mayhem” show is syndicated to — Greensboro and Chattanooga, Tenn.
*****We’re thinking the Greensboro-based station will be 105.7 which has been in major competition with 107.5 and their “Jack Murphy in the Morning Show”…..*****
Clear Channel Triad Stations have been programmed in recent months by the radio guru, Jeff Cushman, who used to be at local station 98.7 The Point and then it was 98.7 The Zone….Cushman was a local basketball player on the outdoor courts when he was in town and if this is his best move, one has to wonder if he still has that Slam Dunk in him, or if Cushman has joined the team over Dunkin Doughnuts….Cushman also followed the Oakland A’s LIVE during day games, back in the late 80’s/early 90’s…..Plus he held tickets for day and night games in Baltimore, back when the Orioles/Birds were still in the hunt and that has now been at least 20 years ago….Go Cushman and you can read more on this story/article/post when you
