Radio One in Charlotte, North Carolina is partnering with a former University of North Carolina basketball coach to present a weekly podcast series that will focus on overcoming failure.

WBT 1110 AM and 99.3 FM will present The Rebound Podcast hosted by Matt Doherty; a 10-part series centering on dealing with life lessons from the past and how to grow from failure.

In 2003, Doherty resigned from his head coaching position at UNC after his character was called into question by some of his players and their parents.

“Matt’s journey is truly inspiring,” said Marsha Landess, Regional Vice President and Market Manager for Radio One, Charlotte. “His insights, and those of his guests, are relatable no matter what field you’re in,” “We are thrilled to partner with him to bring his leadership skills to the Charlotte market and beyond, first through his appearances on WBT with The Brett Winterble Show, and now through The Rebound Podcast!” 

The podcasts will highlight successful individuals in the fields of business, entertainment, politics, sports and more that have had to rebound from failure.

“I am excited to present the Rebound Podcast series with Radio One and WBT,” said Doherty. “Listeners will get an inside seat into the heartache and growth of some of the nation’s leaders in sports, business, politics and religion.  It’s a must listen.” 

New episodes of Matt Doherty’s podcasts will be released on Thursdays and are available at WBT.com and other podcast sites.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
