Posted Friday, November 10, 2017 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Melissa Carter, former Q100 and B98.5 morning show host, has joined Progressive Voices for a daily national hour-long solo podcast called “She Persisted.”

The show focuses on her life and her viewpoints on all sorts of issues, along with interviews and one segment she kept from her days on B98.5: a brief daily anecdote about a person in the news doing something stupid dubbed “Can O’ Crazy.”

Recently, she spent an emotional, sometimes tearful hour earlier this week discussing her kidney transplant 15 years ago. “You learn to appreciate your life and those around you,” she said, her voice breaking.

Progressive Voices is a four-year-old radio network co-founded by Atlanta-based Jon Sinton, who also ran Air America in the mid-2000s, and Reed Haggard, former sales manager at rock station 99X, where Carter began her radio career in the 1990s who also helped start Air America.
