Corey Carter: WIXX 101.1 Green Bay
Updated: Apr 21
Every year since 2013, I have loaded up the car for a football trip to see the Green Bay Packers. The team has a special relationship with the town that is unlike any other in sports. That extends to its local radio partner which clearly doesn’t behave like other radio stations in a medium or small market. WIXX 101.1 is staffed 24/7 with live personalities.
The program director is Corey Carter who also pulls the 1-3pm shift on air. He spoke to me about his employer, Midwest Communications, the relationships developed with team members, the team, and the formula that has kept the station at number one since 1977.
In this episode, we spoke about the difficulty in getting a decent hotel on game days. We solved that problem this year by staying with Kirsten and Gary.
Sadly, the Packers lost the game to the Eagles. We attained a new hate for Eagles fans who rank alongside with the Raiders for the worst fans in the NFL. There is no number three in that category.
