WBT History




In June 2011, Vince Coakley is named WBT's Afternoon Host.

WBT moves its signature event, Holiday On Ice, from The Green Uptown to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, allowing for a 30% larger rink and more room for additional skaters.






In January 2012, Bo Thompson joins the Charlotte Morning News team with Stacey Simms.  

WBT celebrates 90 years of broadcasting.  WBT's leading personalities at the time, were Bo Thompson and Stacey Simms anchor the mornings with Jim Szoke Sports.   Keith Larson gets the Talk started in the mid-morning, and is followed by Rush Limbaugh.  Vince Coakley drives us home and John Hancock exhales with us every evening. 

The WBT Award winning news team included John Stokes, Jim Barroll, Chris Miller, Mike Doyle, Mark Garrison, Dianne Chase, Tom Miller and Edward R. Murrow Award winner Jeff Sonier.  Getting you through all of the traffic is Chuck Roads, Joe Larson, Boomer VonCannon and the rest of the “Roads Traffic Team.”

By Summer 2012, Brad Krantz and Britt Whitmire became WBT's new afternoon drive duo, bringing a new spin on entertainment and politics, with an Onion flavor.
