Radio One, Inc. and Mix 107.9 welcomed a new era today with the debut of “The Morning Mix with Matt Harris & Friends.” The show will wake up Charlotte daily with a fun, upbeat entertaining mix of locally focused interactive content and information, along with Charlotte’s Best Music Mix.
Matt Harris, best known as half of the legendary “The Matt & Ramona Show,” radio team, has entertained Charlotte listeners for the past 22 years. With Ramona Holloway recently taking on a new position with Radio One, Matt is taking the reins of the new Mix morning show featuring Liz Drabick and JD Hanks. They’ll be joined by special guest appearances by friends of the show throughout the week.
Matt is a Charlotte radio & TV star who currently co-hosts a true crime podcast, “Impact of Influence,” which has over eight million downloads and is very active in the Charlotte community.
Liz Drabick returns to the station that gave her a start in radio over 20 years ago, as “Punky” the intern. Since then, this UNC Charlotte Alum has spent the past two decades working in radio and television in Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC.
JD Hanks and his family are happy to make Charlotte home. He is a Disney Dad to the core with a love for Pop Culture. JD was most recently the Imaging Producer for The Mix Group in Miami, Florida.
Neal Sharpe, WLNK Program Director, stated, “I’m excited about the evolution of mornings for Mix 107.9, and Ramona Holloway’s transition into her new role as Community Affairs Manager for the Radio One Charlotte cluster. The Morning Mix with Matt Harris & Friends will feature fun conversation with their unique take on everyday life with Matt as the ringleader.”
