Brotha Fred in...Drex out!
The scoop has been announced on the new Kiss 103.5 morning show host, Brotha Fred. He currently leads the morning show on WIBT-FM (96.1) and co-hosts “Fox News Edge” weeknights on WCCB with Morgan Fogarty. Looks like Drex is out and Brotha Fred is moving in.
Brotha Fred, whose real name is Frederick Christopher, arrived in Charlotte in July 2006 from a station in Austin, Texas. He announced his new gig on “Edge” Thursday night, by saying it would be his last appearance on the show. Brotha Fred is lucky because he will also still be heard on WIBT-FM, where his show from Chicago will be simulcast.
In Chicago, Christopher or “Brotha Fred” will be based at WKSC-FM, which like WIBT-FM, is owned by Clear Channel Radio, which is expected to make a formal announcement of the change Friday morning.
He will be joined by comedian David L, who has been part of the WIBT-FM “Morning Mayhem” crew. Believe it or not, Angie Taylor, a Chicago radio personality, will continue on as the third wheel. Guess she is just happy to still have a job!
Christopher and his crew, will move their morning show home base, to Chicago on Jan. 3, where they will continue to the Charlotte show. It is speculated that on Jan. 17, the show will go live in Chicago. Apparently providing Clear Channel with a double dip, is far more of a stretch than Drex had to offer, for his cool $5 million paycheck.
Brotha Fred is quoted as saying, “I think it’s a good opportunity and a great city,” “It’s the Big Top and I’m going to freeze my butt off!” ALSO WILL LOVE…http://brittaj17.wordpress.com/?s=BROTHA+FRED+BARKS
