Charlotte Radio: Al Gardner Leaves WZGV For Retirement

Al Gardner
Longtime Charlotte radio personality Al Gardner is leaving WZGV 730 AM after a year, and leaving Charlotte as well.

Friday was his last day.

The Charlotte Observer reports Gardner, who will be 68 in December, said Friday he and his wife Robin have sold their home and are moving to a place with a view of the Intracoastal Waterway in Little River, S.C., just outside Myrtle Beach.

“Robin really missed the beach,” Gardner said Friday, “so we’re moving down there.”

Gardner, who for 15 years was the morning host on “Charlotte’s Morning News” on WBT 1110 AM, joined WZGV-AM last December with co-host Lanny Ford. Since June, he has been paired with former Carolina Panthers general manager Marty Hurney on a 1 p.m. daily show, “Hurney and Gardner.”

Ford said he would take Gardner’s place on the show with Hurney beginning Monday.

  1. Sure wish I could speak to Al. I was the keyboard player "Joe" for the "Phone Tones" in Tampa. J.C. was our mutual friend back in the 80's. If anyone knows how I might reach Al outside of Facebook as I am not a member, I would love to talk with Al.
