Radio One Charlotte heritage News Talk WBT AM/FM welcomes veteran news anchor, multiple Emmy-winning documentarian, television host, and former Congressional candidate Beth Troutman to morning drive as co-host of Good Morning BT with Bo Thompson & Beth Troutman.
Having first been called upon by Thompson in 2016 as a correspondent from the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Troutman has been a regular guest with Thompson on WBT, bringing her media experience and personal insight to the conversation with the station’s listeners. The duo’s ability to seamlessly move the discussion from news and politics to sports and entertainment and their shared Charlotte-native experiences has brought a fresh approach to the airwaves of WBT as it approaches its 100th Anniversary this April 10th.
