Hancock originally joined the station back in 1990 in the 9am – 12pm time slot. In 1996, he moved to afternoon drive from 3pm – 6pm. In 1999, John left the station for a short time and returned in 2001 back to the 6pm – 9pm shift, which he has held ever since.
The Brad and Britt Show (consisting of Brad Krantz and Britt Whitmire) will remain on the air and will be moving from 3pm – 6pm to 6pm – 9pm.
“John Hancock has been a staple of WBT for years, earning him the title of Charlotte’s Most Beloved,” said Rick Feinblatt, SVP/market manager of Greater Media Charlotte. “We are excited to have him with our listeners for the drive home.”
“John is the most dynamic and recognizable personality on WBT,” said PD Jason Furst. “We look forward to continuing to provide the most comprehensive programming to our listeners in both day parts with both John Hancock and the Brad & Britt Show.”
