Kenny Moore, a former Butler High star receiver who returned to his hometown to play for the Carolina Panthers, will be the color commentator on the Charlotte 49ers’ six home games on WCCB this season.
Moore will join play-by-play announcer Ryan Rose in the booth at Richardson Stadium, with WCCB’s Brandon Davidow, the sideline reporter, and Kelli Bartik and Jon Wilson providing features.
After graduating from Butler, Moore played at Wake Forest, where he was an All-ACC wide receiver in 2007. He played in a limited role for the Panthers in 2009 and was the first Charlottean to play for the team.
Rose has done play-by-play for ACC and Big East football and basketball games for seven years on ESPN3. He has also called arena football games, U.S. Olympic diving trials, the Shrine Bowl and various other high school and college sports. Rose is also an assistant sports information director for the 49ers.
Davidow and Bartik are sports anchors at WCCB, while Wilson has had several on-air roles at the station since 2004.
