Staff Bios

Hi folks, I'm Archie Morgan, President & GM of Monroe Broadcasting Co., Inc., 'The Mighty 1190'. I was born in Marshville, grew up in Monroe and it is an true honor for me to live and work in the town I call home. I am married to Pam and we raised two wonderful children here who are products of the fine schools in Unionville.

After work in the restaurant industry and also at Frito-Lay I began work in radio at WMAP here in Monroe in 1988 with 'The Foxx' . We did the morning show there and it was great fun doing different characters and clowning around with Foxx on the air. In 1990 we had the opportunity to purchase WIXE and we did. Foxx taught me not only the technical things I would need to know but he also taught me the importance of local radio to its' community. I learned things that seem to be missing now in the syndicated and voice- tracked world of commercial radio and that is that when you are on the air you are talking directly to people. When you wish someone a Happy Birthday or assist them with a lost dog or comment about the passing of someone's loved one, you are talking to them, directly. That isn't done much in radio anymore by the sound of things yet it is the philosophy that I learned and have maintained. WIXE doesn't sound like most other stations especially in the Charlotte market which we are a part of and if we start too, please give me a swift kick.

In 2000 Foxx wanted to semi-retire therefore allowing me the opportunity to have 100% ownership in WIXE with my wife Pam. We haven't looked back, even when our tower fell and we had to rebuild. A number of broadcast friends recommended then that I move the station to Charlotte where I could make more money. Never considered it. I'm home.

I learned a long time ago that to be successful you surround yourself with successful people and I have done just that. My staff is fantastic and I would be lost without them. Each one of them brings a wealth of talent to WIXE and I am honored to have them in my employ.

We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to your radio listening and we appreciate the time you give us here at WIXE. We hear from so many listeners that tell us they turn us on in the morning and listen all day. That is special and we Thank You! We also appreciate the way you support our advertisers. In most cases we have used that advertiser ourselves so when we talk about a roofer, a Doctor, a restaurant, a plumber, we are conveying our experience just like one of your friends or neighbor would do. You've heard the expression, "Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising". We couldn't agree more and that is exactly what we do. The only difference is that we have a microphone and an antenna. Rest assured, if we say they have good chicken, you can take it to the bank. Thank you again for your listenership and support. If I can help you in any way please don't hesitate to call.

Radio Advertising is the best thing you can do to grow your business and to maintain the business that you have. Call me and letís talk. I came to WIXE in 2002, but began my radio career in Sumter, South Carolina in 1984Öthatís 27 years of sitting in front of business owners who need help, need ideas and need results! I live here in Monroe, near Downtown Monroe and fully support our downtown.

You can easily find me at The Art Walk in the spring and fall, Music on Main and other festivals and activities. Iím a proud Rotarian and belong to the Monroe-Union Breakfast Rotary Club. My family lives in Sumter and in Summerville, South Carolina and I visit them often.
