A proud first-generation fan of the Hornets, Panthers and Hurricanes, Kroeger replaces Marc James who joined CBS Radio Atlanta sports station WZGC (Sports Radio 92.9 the Game) earlier this month as afternoon “Game Time” co-host.
Kroeger will rotate two different cohosts each day on “Prime Time with Chris Kroeger” including local and national writers, former athletes and team owners alongside the show’s other members The Q.C.B., Hitman, and Jayweezie.
Also new to the lineup today is “The Call Up with Colin and Nate” (weekdays 10:00am to 12n) featuring on air/producer for the WFNZ Mac Attack Morning Show Colin Hoggard and Nate Conley Executive Producer of the WFNZ midday show “Bustin’ Loose” with Frank Garcia and Mark Yarbro. Fan favorites Colin and Nate are joining forces on this caller intensive show bringing a fresh perspective to sports radio.
“We’ve taken our time in putting the right shows and the right people in place,” said Operations Manager/Program Director DJ Stout. “All three of these guys know the city and know the station and bring a passion for sports as well as different perspectives for WFNZ and Sports Radio in the Carolinas.”
