ESPN Charlotte Adds Gerry Vaillancourt For Afternoons; Launches Local Morning Show
HRN Broadcasting Sports “ESPN Charlotte” 730 WZGV Cramerton/Charlotte NC is shaking up its morning and afternoon slots.
Gerry ‘V’ Vaillancourt, former morning host at iHeartMedia News/Talk 99.5 WRNO New Orleans, is returning to Charlotte to take the 3-7pm slot at WZGV. Vaillancourt worked in the Charlotte market from 1990-2002 before following the NBA’s then Charlotte Hornets to New Orleans. He worked on the franchise’s radio broadcasts as an analyst until 2014. He exited WRNO at the end of 2016.
To make room for Vaillancourt, current afternoon host Bobby Rosinski and 12-3pm hosts Molly Cotten and Walker Mehl will debut the “Wake Up Call” from 6-10am. They replace ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the morning slot.
