Beasley Media Group announces legendary Charlotte-based nationally syndicated Morning Personalities Bob & Sheri join Beasley Media Group’s K104.7 WKQC-FM beginning Monday, May 17th. The duo will be heard weekdays from 5a.m. – 8:30 a.m. They came on the air to make the official announcement during the WKQC Morning Show with Phil and Mel on Monday morning.
Bob and Sheri most recently left their longtime home station, 107.9 WLNK-FM at the end of April. The program can currently be heard on 70 affiliate stations across the country. Under the new morning show structure, Phil & Mel will continue to host the station’s “Commercial Free Workday Kickoff” feature during the show at 8:30am as well as the second half of the morning content daily on WKQC. In addition, Phil & Mel will wrap up the workday on the ride home from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Bob & Sheri is heard weekly by millions across 70 radio stations in the US, in 170 countries on the Armed Forces Radio Network, and the podcast regularly ranks in Apple’s Top 200 comedy podcasts. The duo was a finalist in the 2020 Radio Hall of Fame and has been a National Association of Broadcasters’ Marconi Award finalist in the Network/Syndicated Show category ten times. Lynch has won five American Women in Media Gracie Allen Awards and has been consistently listed as one of Radio Ink’s Most Influential Women in Radio.
“Our social media pages have been blowing up ever since our departure from The Link was announced, and now they’re blowing up again!” said Sheri Lynch. “This is a move we’ve wanted to make for a long time. The entire team at K104.7 is focused on serving and entertaining Charlotte listeners.”
“Even with millions of listeners around the world, Charlotte is Bob & Sheri’s home,” stated Tony Garcia, who together with Lacey and Lynch owns NOW! Media, the company that syndicates Bob & Sheri. “We’re excited to finally be on a hometown station with music that lines up perfectly with our target demo, and even more excited to work with a team that truly embraces the show.”
“I am thrilled to be on K104-7 in Charlotte,” said Bob Lacey. “It’s a powerful station, great folks to work with (we’ve known Program Director Jack Daniel forever!), and it’s a much better music fit for us. This is where we should be in Charlotte.”
“When we heard that Bob and Sheri were going to be available, we were on it right away,” said Beasley Media Group Charlotte Vice President and Market Manager Bill Schoening. “It’s a privilege to have such iconic talent join our station. Phil and Mel are not only completely on-board with the whole move, but they were also the ones who recommended it.”
“Charlotte has been a very competitive morning show stage with very big local and syndicated talent,” said Beasley Media Group Vice President of Music & Entertainment and Charlotte Operations Manager, John Reynolds. “Having Bob & Sheri join our personality lineup with Phil & Mel and Jack Daniel is a huge win for the Charlotte listeners to hear great entertainment and be able to access it all in one place on K104.7!”
“I’ve known Bob Lacey for a long time as we worked at Jefferson Pilot together in the 80’s,” said WKQC-FM Program Director, Jack Daniel. “I met Sheri shortly after they teamed up 29 years ago. They are pros and as they have said, this is the best fit possible for them and K104.7!”
