RIP a true radio legend Brian Carter. We had so many great conversations over the years, thanks for the support and positive encouragement. I recall one time at Power 99 morale was so low and we had a very tense staff meeting and Brian stood up with tears in his eyes and rallied the troops . He loved radio and will be missed.~Colby Colb
WOW!!!.. As a young dude coming home from college I got a job as a promotions assisiant at Power 99. One of the first people to take me under their wing was Brian Carter. He taught me the ups and downs wrongs and rights of the radio industry. He was so excited for me and Uncleo Uncleoo when we got the Morning show shift. He always told us to “remain humble” and “finish the job”. We were suppose to have lunch with Brian but our schedules always conflicted….Now I can NEVER have lunch with him!!! Make sure you tell the people you love that you love them and make time for the people that you care about because tomorrow is never promised. RIP to the man who gave me the name “Mikey Dredd” who was a Friend, Mentor, Brother and a great person!!~Mikey Dredd
