Ramona Holloway Makes Moves at Radio One Charlotte
Mix 107.9’s Morning Show Co-Host Ramona Holloway Named Community Affairs Manager
Radio One, Inc. announced today that long time radio host Ramona Holloway has been named Community Affairs Manager for the Charlotte cluster including WLNK, WOSF, WBT, WPZS, WFNZ, and WOSF-HD2. In her new role, Ramona will work with the Radio One Charlotte stations and the local community and advocacy groups to grow and maintain positive relationships and provide community service throughout the Charlotte Metro.
Ramona Holloway, best known as half of the legendary radio team, “The Matt & Ramona Show,” has a career span of 30 years in media, motivational speaking, and event hosting. For the past 22 years, along with her radio partner Matt Harris, they have kept listeners entertained with their award-winning show. She is a true Charlotte celebrity with multimedia exposure as a former co-host of “Charlotte Today,” on WCNC-TV and former co-host on “News Edge” on WCCB-TV.
According to Ramona,” I’ve been blessed to have lived my radio dreams. I’ve worked every format from county to gospel. I’ve been a news director and hosted a syndicated show with my brother from another mother, Matt Harris. It’s time to move into a new chapter, one that feeds my passion and gives me an opportunity to forge community partnerships that can make a positive contribution. I’ll still stop by the MIX 107.9 studios on Tuesdays and Thursdays to have fun with my friends on the MIX morning show, but my goal is to expand Radio One’s philanthropic endeavors across all 6 stations in the cluster.
Marsha Landess, Regional Vice President and General Manager added, “Radio One Charlotte is committed to making a difference in our community. I can think of no one better to lead this charge for us than Ramona Holloway. Her longevity in this market, her commitment to serving the community and her incredible passion for making a difference with our listeners, clients and community partners is unmatched. She now will have the opportunity to work closer with all six of our radio station brands and websites to help make an even larger impact. Even though we will miss hearing her every morning on the radio, we are happy she will still be a vital part of our Radio One Charlotte family.”
Ramona will begin her new role as Community Affairs Manager on Wednesday, May 3, 2023.
