Wheeler joined the station in June from Curtis' WQDR/Raleigh (CAT 6/12), and takes over for APD/MD Rick McCracken, who has exited after 32 years. "The first thing I want to do is thank you for your longtime support, and recognize those genuine lasting friendships I've been blessed with over more than 30 years at one of the most unique and special radio stations in America," he says in a Facebook post.
