CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Monday December 30, 2013– CBS RADIO CHARLOTTE Sports radio 610 WFNZ The Fan announces Marc James will take the reins solo in afternoons (weekdays 2:00pm to 7:00pm) with the departure of Taylor Zarzour. The duo will air their last show together today that can be heard on Sports Radio 610AM WFNZ the Fan, online at http://www.wfnz.com and through the radio.com app on a variety of mobile devices.
Marc James will take the driver’s seat as his co-host Taylor Zarzour leaves for another opportunity. Zarzour will continue to remain a part of the WFNZ family by calling into the show with Marc weekly on The Drive.
“I’ll be forever grateful for the opportunity that (Operations Manager) DJ Stout and (Market Manager) Bill Schoening gave me at WFNZ,” said Zarzour. “I am extremely proud of the success that we had in my three years on the show and have no doubt Marc and the crew will continue to grow the audience. I am excited about my next opportunity but will continue to be a part of the WFNZ family.”
Zarzour and James have been co-hosting The Drive afternoons on WFNZ since they were paired in January 2011 alongside other the show’s other members The Q.C.B., Hitman, and Jayweezie.
“Although it is bittersweet to see Taylor go, he has done a great job for us and we will miss his talent and professionalism,” said DJ Stout WFNZ Operations Manager/Program Director. “We’re excited for Marc to take on this opportunity. He is a top notch talent and we look forward to him taking The Drive to the next level.”
Besides co-hosting The Drive, Marc James most recently held down national hosting fill in duties on CBS Sports Radio’s John Feinstein Show (heard locally 9a-12n on CBS Sports Radio 1660) and before joining WFNZ was the afternoon host on ESPN 1040 in Tampa.
“Taylor Zarzour is probably the hardest working person is sports talk radio. He made me a better host, but more importantly a better man,” said James. “I look forward to taking Sports Radio 610 WFNZ the Fan to unparalleled heights in the future. Charlotte is hands down one of the best sports towns in America and we will continue to make Charlotte proud to call WFNZ THE best sports talk station in the City.”
