Tom Britt Joins Chuck & Leanne

Another addition to the new local radio station coming to Alamance County is, Tom Britt.

 

Chuck Marsh, President of the new station and part of the local morning team says "Having Leanne and now Tom Britt who lives minutes from our new studios off Huffman Mill in Burlington is the icing on the cake for our team!  Tom is the best of the best, spending years on Fox 8 as a meterologist.  Tom will take care of our stations news needs; our communities news needs when it comes to hyper local news, weather and traffic, not only in morning drive with Chuck & Leanne, but through out the day.  Alamance County will be able to depend on our station for whats happening right here in on community.   

 

Tom Britt entered broadcasting in 1966 while a freshman at East Carolina University. Originally, Tom considered broadcasting only as a way to finance his education, and continued in radio, TV and cable through graduate school at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Tom holds a BA and MA in Anthropology, an AA in Mental Health Technology and is pursuing his certification in Meteorology. Tom is also a freelance journalist and writer. For many years, he produced an award winning weekly radio feature for Duke University Medical Center that was carried on many stations and networks around the world, including the BBC.

Now, he handles afternoon news for Triad radio station WMQX-FM (Oldies 93), hosts a monthly cable tv show in Raleigh-Durham and is the voice for many radio and tv commercials in central and eastern North Carolina.

Chuck Marsh & Leanne Petty return to radio...

In 2014, Chuck Marsh stepped away from Triad Radio and his (at that time) #1 Rate Morning Show.  There wasn't much said about that and Marsh still will not talk about it in great detail because of a confidntiallity agreement with the radio group who owns 93.1 The Wolf.  Mash did tell Alamance 411 that the main reason he left is why he is now so excited to be back on radio in Alamance County and to be partnered with not only Leanne, but News icon Tom Britt and you can bet Crate (Ronnie Payne) will be part of the new morning show too.  Chuck Marsh told Alamance 411:  "This will be like a bunch of friends sitting around the kitchen table or the front poarch, drinking coffee and chatting about stuff in the news...community happenings and mainly having fun.  Nobody on our team thinks their smarter than the listeners and we'll always put them first!  I've always said, if you put the listeners and your advertisers first, the takes care of itself"! 

 

As far as the launch date of the Reboot of Chuck & Leanne?  We're told that on Friday, March 1st; there will be something going on.  The launch will include 5,000 commercial free with the new format on 1200 AM and 95.1 FM with a new signal that is slatted for launch in about 90 days.  The 94.3 FM will cover Mebane and Hillsborough, NC.
