Smithfield – On Wednesday, Truth Broadcasting Corporation of Winston Salem, NC entered into an agreement with Lamm Media Group, the owner of WTSB Radio Station, to keep AM 1090 and FM 105.5 on the air.
Earlier this month Carl Lamm announced he would be retiring at the end of March ending his 72 year career in broadcasting. At the time plans were for the radio station to go silent at the end of the broadcast day on March 31, 2019. Carl’s retirement plans have not changed, however, WTSB will remain on the air.
On April 1, 2019, Truth Broadcasting will take over programming of WTSB which has deep roots in the Johnston County and Eastern North Carolina.
Michael Carbone, Chief Operating Officer for Truth Broadcasting said, “With the retirement of the principle voice of the station, Carl Lamm, Truth Broadcasting aims to maintain the rest of the air talent and the vast majority of programming. Listeners should hear little difference in the day-to-day programming of the station.”
“I am proud to turn over the reins of WTSB Radio to an outstanding Christian organization like Truth Broadcasting,” WTSB’s Carl Lamm said. “They will maintain many of the programs our listeners have come to enjoy on a daily basis. Our community will still be able to tune into 1090AM and 105.5FM on Monday and hear WTSB on the air. The local programming will remain virtually unchanged and for that I am grateful.”
“Truth Broadcasting is very pleased to have found radio partners who share the vision for local, community-based radio, and for an inviting environment for a faith-based audience, and look forward to many years continuing to serve the local area with Carolina values,” Carbone added.
