This is wonderful news! Nathan's always been a consummate radio professional, both on and off air. I worked with him many years ago and was always impressed with his passion for and dedication to radio, from the beginnings of his career at WOAP to now.

Flint's loss is Atlanta's gain! I will miss the Will and Grace style morning show on CARS 108. Who will be replacing him in mornings?

Okay in either case JJ deserves this wonderful opportunity to do great radio in a top 10 Market. He is someone we should all aspire to be like. His passion for this business is unmatched. And he's a nice person to boot. So maybe no on Noble.

Nathan’s LinkedIn page doesn’t list WCRZ as where he’s been. It still has him working for Cox in Tampa. He hadn’t worked in the Flint market (until recently) since 2008.

He’s returning to a company he worked for starting in 2016.

Best wishes to him, but it’s not really a surprising career move.

It's widely known that Lisa Marie is quite difficult to work with. It was a no-brainer for Nathan to leave WCRZ.
