Congratulations is in order for Brad Carson. The program director of 92.9 ESPN in Memphis has been promoted to Operations Manager of Sports Brands (WMFS FM/AM, and WMC-AM ) for Entercom Memphis.

Carson has worked for Entercom Memphis for 15 years.  Under his watch 92.9 ESPN has enjoyed record ratings and earned a Marconi nomination for Sports Station of the Year in 2018. The station’s afternoon program ‘The Gary Parrish Show’ was also recognized as BSM’s top ranked Mid-Market Afternoon Show for 2018 by a panel of industry programmers and executives.

In a memo to employees, which included announcing the promotion of Chris Michaels to Operations Manager of Music Brands for Entercom Memphis, SVP/Market Manager Dan Barron said, “Chris and Brad have each guided their respective stations to all time ratings highs while navigating changing market conditions, competitive attacks, personnel adjustments etc. I’m proud and thankful for Chris, Brad and the team that they get to work with every day. Radio stations are much more complex today than they were a decade ago; social media, streaming, events and technology make for a never-ending set of opportunities and challenges — the job does not end at 5:30pm. I think you will agree with me that we are in a better position with Chris and Brad guiding the brands and this elevation in title is more reflective of their responsibilities and contributions.”

Altogether Carson has spent twenty five years in the radio business. Before settling into Memphis he enjoyed stops at KMXB & KMZQ in Las Vegas, WKOE & WIXM/Atlantic City, NJ and WSMI/Litchfield, IL.
