Kee, to name a few. Charlotte has also turned out more than its fair share of professional athletes, with lots of current and former NFL, NBA and MLB players. Charlotte itself is home to the NFL team Carolina Panthers, as well the NBA’s Carolina Bobcats.

Arbitron ranks Charlotte as the 24th largest radio market in the U.S., with dozens of strong-signal stations competing for market share in formats such as News/Talk, Top-40, Urban Contemporary, Soft Rock, Latino and Religious.
