Talking with people about significant issues every day.
What do you think listeners like most about you?
I don’t talk down to listeners and welcome callers with a differing view. I allow people time to have their say.
When he's not talking about the issues that affect you, Bobby Mc is probably on the golf course or piddling around the house with his "Baby Doll" Brenda and their West Highland White Terrier Megan.
Angela started at Entercom back in May of 2004 but bringing experience with her after working at a small country station in Lenoir, NC. She attended North Greenville University. She's originally from Hudson, NC (GO TARHEELS) but currently resides in Easley, SC with her 1 dog, 1 cat, 2 snakes, 3 Australian Blue Phace Dumpy Tree Frogs (always a conversation starter) and her 21... oops... make that 20 fish.
You can hear Angela in the afternoon on Bob McLain's show. She's his number 1 call screener, button pusher, and general helper to keep Bob on his toes and doing what he needs to be doing (and he needs that a lot!)
And that is why Bob affectionaly calls her "Miss Moneypenny."
