Charlotte's WBT AM/FM Named Station Of The Year


Greater Media Charlotte's News/Talk WBT AM/FM has been named 2013 Radio Station of the Year by the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters (NCAB) in the large market category. The award was presented last week at the NCAB's annual convention in Greensboro, NC.

The Station of the Year Award is given to radio stations that highlight innovative programming, with an emphasis on audience involvement and promotion, and a commitment to their local community.

"It is fitting that North Carolina's first and most legendary radio station, WBT, would win the inaugural NCAB Station of the Year award,” said Greater Media Charlotte Vice President and Station Manager Trip Savery. “We are very proud to receive this honor from NCAB."

In 2012 WBT celebrated its 90th anniversary, making it the country's second-oldest radio station.
