I've been on the programming side of country radio for almost 3 years now, and I can't tell you how many people in the industry have said to me, "Do you know Carletta? Because you should."
Fast forward - here we are! Finally connecting ... and I'm so glad we have!
Carletta Blake is as passionate about her career as she is kind (which says A LOT). She truly loves what she does, and I feel like that's so rare to find in any industry. And get this ... she's REALLY freaking good at it too.
She's made stops in Dallas, New Bern, and Raleigh before ending up at 99.5 WGAR in Cleveland in 2019. Carletta started there as the Program Director and afternoon drive, and then transitioned to Mornings ... while still being the Program Director of the station. Girlfriend does it all with a smile on her face.
Oh - and did I mention how she JUST won Program Director of the Year (Large Market) at the Country Radio Seminar/Country Aircheck Awards?!?! 'Cause she did!
We talked about her radio journey, how she balances everything, and a new project that she's working on where she hopes to help others who are in a similar situation she's in now with someone she's very close with.
