This is the station that launched Mike’s career as a radio talk show host some 35 years ago.

"This community is where I met my wife, where we raised our kids, and will always be home to me," Gallagher said. "To return to the same station where my ride began all those years ago is simply incredible. Many thanks to Audacy Market Manager Steve Sinicropi and Ops Manager Mark Hendrix for putting this deal together. I can't wait to get back on the air there. Who says you can't go home again?"

Salem Media Group sold WGTK-FM last fall, and that meant Mike and other hosts on that station were no longer able to be heard on the local station. Listeners followed Mike online, and now they can follow him back on the radio. Joey Hudson, Mike's close friend and director of The Mike Gallagher Show charitable foundation, will be playing a prominent role on Mike's show as well as hosting a daily sunrise hour-long show of his own. Joey, a well-known Upstate South Carolina native son, was the popular morning show host on WGTK-FM prior to Salem selling the station.

Owned by Audacy, 100 KW NewsTalk 98.9/WYRD-FM, The Voice of the Carolinas is the most influential NewsTalk radio station in South Carolina and is also available nationwide on smart speakers and the free Audacy App.
