The Big Talker Returns To Wilmington NC

106.7 Wilmington Big Talker WFBT WMYTChad Adams’ Red Wolf Broadcasting (unrelated to the Connecticut based company of the same name) will take over the LMA of Carolina Christian Radio’s 106.7 WMYT Carolina Beach/Wilmington NC on Monday, March 20.

Red Wolf will relaunch the station as “106.7 The Big Talker” WFBT resurrecting the brand that was previously heard on 93.7 WNTB/106.3 WLTT until its flip to NewsPort City Radio” in 2013. The format change at those stations were timed to Adams’ retirement from the station.

Adams will host from 9-11am while Pam & John Dismukes will join for mornings. The rest of the station’s lineup will include Sean Hannity, Dave Ramsey, Mike Gallagher, Dana Loesch, and Coast To Coast AM.

The Big Talker FM will return to the airwaves of coastal North Carolina on Monday, March 20th on 106.7FM and will feature some familiar voices for conservative talk listeners. The line-up includes Sean Hannity, Dave Ramsey, Mike Gallagher, and Dana Loesch as well as the nation’s longest running talk show “Coast-to-Coast AM” through the overnight.

Chad Adams will be returning to the airwaves as host of “The Chad Adams Show” Monday through Friday from 9am-11am. He is also the CEO and a shareholder of Red Wolf Broadcasting which is the programmer of the station. Chad’s show has been on air with Red Wolf since May of last year and is in syndication from Charlotte to Greensboro markets.

“It’s fantastic to be back on the air in the Wilmington area. The people, businesses, listeners and elected officials were always wonderful to me,” Adams said. “The political environment is always in flux and there’s always a lot to talk about.” Adams was the #1 talk show host in the mornings on the former Big Talker FM from 2010 to 2013.

The station will introduce a new morning show, “Mornings with Pam and John,” featuring John and Pam Dismukes, weekdays from 6am-9am. Their show will be focused on Wilmington and the surrounding area while Adams’ show will focus a great deal on North Carolina and national issues.

“This is a great opportunity for us and we look forward to talking all about Southeastern NC on the new Big Talker FM,” said Pam Dismukes, the morning show co-host.

Red Wolf Broadcasting COO Johnny Shull said he believes this is an entirely new chapter of radio for the area. “There is no doubt that Wilmington and the surrounding area have the desire and capacity for a stellar conservative talk radio station and Wilmington’s Big Talker will be it,” said Shull.
