Sundays 8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.
Every Sunday, Don Curtis, John Gawthrop, and Jason Kong have a roundtable discussion about the biggest news stories impacting the Triangle and the nation. The topics of each show are a wide mix featuring everything from the economy, all the way to our lighthearted and fun trivia questions. Each week we try to fulfill our promise of “doing a little better than our last show.”
Meet Don Curtis
In 1957, fifteen-year-old Don Curtis walked into the studios of WKMT in Kings Mountain and applied for a job as a weekend announcer. The audition test tape is still in his possession, and according to Curtis, “It was terrible.”
While he didn’t get the part-time announcing job, the owner of the station told Curtis he would sell him an hour each week which Curtis could re-sell to the merchants of his hometown in Bessemer City which didn’t have a radio station. Curtis discovered that he could sell the time for more than he paid each week, and that was the beginning of his broadcast management career.
