Wheeler Passes Off Duties After 27 Years


After 27 years as General Manager of the Mel Wheeler Inc. cluster of radio stations (WSLC, WSLQ, WXLK, WVBE/WVBB, WFIR, WLNI, WPLY/WPLI, WXLK HD-2 Rock Channel) in Roanoke-Lynchburg, VA, President and co-owner Leonard Wheeler is handing the reins of top management over to Brett Sharp as GM and Nadra Scott as VP of Sales.

“I’m so pleased to announce two moves to improve the management structure of our stations and company,” said Wheeler. “Brett Sharp has been a critical part of the success of our stations since 2000, when he became Program Director of a new Country station (WSLC-FM) and steered it to become the leading station in the market for more than 11 consecutive years to date. Nadra Scott is a more recent blessing to our company, joining us in 2017 as Director of Sales. She came to us from Atlanta, having extensive experience with Cox, Lincoln Financial, and Entercom in the Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale markets.

He added: “I will continue to have a close involvement with the stations, as I move from being a General Manager who has been out too much due to other responsibilities, to a President and owner who will be in the stations a lot.”
