Vice President/General Manager of Radio One, Inc. – Charlotte, Debbie Kwei-Cook adds, “Skip Murphy created the mold for Charlotte’s successful radio personalities. He’s a native to the Charlotte area who made his show funny, interactive and relevant to the community. Skip Murphy is Charlotte! I worked with him in the early 90′s and even though he’s only filling in for Tom Joyner, I’m anxiously looking forward to hearing him on the air again!”
Skip Murphy is no stranger to the Charlotte market and Radio One, Inc. is excited to have him back on the Charlotte airwaves!
