Mike Morse, a former executive producer and on-air personality for G105's "Bob and the Showgram" radio program, is joining "My Carolina Today" on WNCN as Valonda Calloway's new co-host.
Morse left the "Showgram" in the summer of 2012, after nine years on staff. He previously worked for WRAL's Mix 101.5 radio station, becoming the executive producer of "The Bill and Sheri Show" in 1999. He left that station for "The Showgram" in 2003.
Morse and "Showgram" host Bob Dumas were involved in some controversy in 2008 when an intern was teased on-air about her upcoming wedding to a Lumbee Indian. But Morse was always seen as the nice guy on the show, typically playing the easygoing sidekick who offered contrast to Dumas' more strident persona.
Originally from Virginia, Morse lives in Cary with his wife and two children.
He replaces Sharon Delaney, who stepped down May 10 after three years on the show to devote more time to her family, according to a WNCN press release.
"My Carolina Today" airs weekday mornings at 11 on WNCN.
