PHILADELPHIA, PA – February 14, 2020 – Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., welcomes radio veteran Brett Winterble as afternoon drive host for News Talk 1110 & 99.3 WBT (WBT-AM/FM) in Charlotte. “The Brett Winterble Show” will be a familiar sounding board for the issues that Charlotteans face today and will raise awareness for causes that Winterble and the community care about, including helping wounded military veterans find housing and employment, and helping fight childhood hunger. “The Brett Winterble Show” will be heard weekdays from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., effective February 17.
“Brett Winterble represents the future of audio,” said Matthew Hanlon, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Charlotte. “When John Hancock took this exact seat on WBT 30 years ago he was a progressive-minded voice in the market, placing an emphasis on issues that affected the community. Brett takes on a similar role in a new and meaningful way for our loyal audience. He cares about the listener and demonstrates a genuine interest in the community. We’re thrilled that Brett is joining our team.”
“WBT is an iconic station with a legendary history of serving Charlotte for almost a century,” said Winterble. “When I was offered the chance to take the WBT listener family and our sponsor partners with me into our next hundred years, I was excited beyond words.”
Winterble joins News Talk 1110 & 99.3 WBT from KFMB in San Diego, where he hosted afternoon drive since 2015. His 20-year career in media encompasses hosting duties in television and radio, including afternoon drive on KFWB in Los Angeles, and producing for talk radio giants like Michael Reagan and Rush Limbaugh. Winterble succeeds WBT Hall of Fame legend John Hancock, who announced his retirement in October 2019.
WBT has supported the community of Charlotte for nearly 98 years, and Brett will continue this commitment to service as WBT approaches its centennial celebration in 2022.
