Brian was a good friend and mentor. His passion for radio and music was unmatched. As I reminisce, it seemed he only talked about radio and music nothing else intrested him.
He died early Sunday morning, after suffering an apparent heart attack.
Brian Carter, a Baltimore native began his radio career in his hometown. In the late 1980′s and throughout the 90′s, Carter along with Bill Simpson came together to form the hugely popular “Carter and Sanborn in the Morning” show in Philadelphia at WUSL Power 99. The “C&S” morning show became the anchor that launched the station to the heritage status it now enjoys in the radio industry. The show featured a cast of off-beat characters, all voiced by Sanborn, including wise-cracking horoscope reader Horace the Taurus, with Carter playing the voice of reason. The show also featured co-host CeCe McGee as ‘The Skirt with the Dirt.’ Towards the end of their run on Power 99, Wendy Williams joined the show as well. The show was briefly revived in 2005 on WDAS FM, after that station dropped Tom Joyner from its schedule. Carter was a regular host on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and for the past few years he was the weekend midday host at 107.5 WBLS in New York.
Carter and Sanborn returned to the WDAS’ airwaves in July 2010 hosting afternoons for the vacationing Michael Baisden Show (pictured in center is Quiet Storm host Tony Brown)
