Thompson will continue as Morning News host for at least the next 5-years. Thompson started his career at WBT as an intern in 1990. He was also part of the Production Team that launched Charlotte's Morning News with Al Gardner. He did programming and on-air work for several other stations over the next several years, and was a television producer at WCCB for three years.
He returned to WBT in 2012 to succeed Gardner as host of Charlotte's Morning News.
“BO builds on the incredible reputation of WBT as we take our news content to the next level,” said VP/Market Manager Matt Hanlon. “He represents the next generation of great broadcasters and we’re happy to continue to work with him as we move WBT into an audio everywhere, multiplatform experience for our listeners.”
