WLNK's Bob Lacey Honored


WLNK/Charlotte Morning Show Co-Host Bob Lacey (pictured) was among the honorees officially inducted into the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters (NCAB) Hall of Fame, Monday, June 24, for their contributions to broadcasting and to the state of North Carolina. The inductees were officially recognized during the NCAB Annual Convention held at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC. The Bob and Sheri Show is broadcast to more than 40 affiliates around the country, including four North Carolina markets, as well as over 170 countries worldwide through the Armed Forces Radio Network.

"Bob is very deserving of this recognition by NCAB, said Greater Media Charlotte Station Manager Trip Savery. He joins other North Carolina broadcasting legends including Rick Dees, Charles Kuralt, and Ty Boyd who were all inducted at the height of their careers."

Lacey began his career in radio at the young age of nine. After a stint in television in the 1980s, he returned to radio in 1990 as a morning host at WBTs FM counterpart (now WLNK), where The Bob and Sheri Show is still produced today. Lacey and Sheri Lynch met in 1991 while Lacey was searching for a co-host. He spearheaded the hiring of Lynch, pioneering a new format giving women equal power in a male-dominated morning radio environment.
