WXBM Names Marty White’s New AM Partner

August 6, 2011

Radio station WXBM has selected Lindsey Marie Addison to partner with longtime local radio personality Marty White on “Your Hometown Morning Show”, anchoring the market leading radio station 102.7 WXBM.

Lindsey Marie, a graduate of Pace High School and the University of West Florida, was one of over two hundred applicants to try out as White’s partner.

“For almost two decades, ‘Your Hometown Morning Show’ has been the top morning show in Pensacola and with the addition of Lindsey Marie, we have no doubt that trend will continue. This is a rare opportunity and we couldn’t be happier to find someone in our own backyard to partner with Marty,” David Cobb, WXBM station manager said.

“I am overjoyed, and blessed to be joining the WXBM team,” Lindsey Marie said. “This has been a dream of mine for many years, and to finally see that dream being realized is amazing. I am humbled and so grateful for the support from my family, friends, and our listeners. I could not do this without you all, and I can not wait for you to wake up with Marty and me in the mornings!”

“I’ve been around a while and have worked with some talented people” said Marty White. “Lindsey Marie is talented, sharp, fun and she is real! She’s funny, too. Folks are gonna like her and they’ll like waking up with our show.”

The “Your Hometown Morning Show” airs from 6-10 a.m. each weekday on WXBM 102.7 FM.

    Miss Linda Lawrence very much; she was very funny and very down to earth.
    She will be missed very much! You need to bring her back Marty!

    Linda was the best part of that morning show!!!! she was funny, full of energy, and will be missed! Marty is nothing but a redneck, wanna b race car driving dud! Get another male host & maybe it will be a descent radio station!

    Why is that people look at a pretty girl and think she has loose morals and she is dumb. She needs a chance to prove herself. I am over weight and 67 years old. I play tennis, If you just look at me you would think I could not possibly play tennis. Everyone deserves a chance.

    Linda Lawrence was released from her contract w/ WXBM because her and Marty got into an “altercation”, after which Linda decided she could no longer work w/ him. If you’re going to blame anyone for anything, blame Marty.

    @ UNOHOO
    I agree with you I think ol bucketmouth don’t have a clue about what’s going on ..

  7. UNOHOO on August 8th, 2011 6:19 pm

    Listen up boys. It has nothing to do with giving the new gal a chance or not. It’s about the post by Someonewhoknows giving Linda a chance to come clean or he/she is going to spill the beans. In the first place, it’s not set up for them to be Linda’s ‘counsel’, and in the second place; Someonewhoknows doesn’t know a damn thing!
    Good luck new gal, I hope your contract has an escape clause for you!

    Get a good book on cassette or cd and listen to that…. you will like it better and you will usually learn something.

  9. Bullwinkle on August 8th, 2011 4:35 pm

    Bullwinkle is for giving the lady a chance! She’s a beaut

  10. REF on August 8th, 2011 4:17 pm

    Who knows what happened the truth will come to light eventually.. I vote for less talk an more music in the morning. Until they get it straight let the girl have her day an enjoy her job..

  11. jarrod on August 8th, 2011 12:57 pm

    I was like most of ya’ll I loved listening to Linda also!!! But you need to give this girl a chance it may work out to where you love her also. sometimes you have to accept change whether you want to or not. Good Luck Lyndsey Marie you have some relly big shoes to fill. i hope you the best.

  12. UNOHOO on August 8th, 2011 11:38 am

    OK bucketmouth (someonewhoknows), let’s have it. I know all of NorthEscambia is waiting to hear what happened to white’s partner of 10 years! Do You Really Know?

  13. carolpatka on August 7th, 2011 10:53 pm

    Listened last week and want to say I also don’t want to hear about her clothes and in particular her wearing pink. Schoolgirls wear pink.

  14. ifshoefits on August 7th, 2011 1:28 pm

    Linda carried the show livening up that “dial tone” she had for a partner. Did they do interviews for her replacement at Sammy’s? Doesn’t look like she would relate to WXBM listeners very well. I’ll change my dial!

  15. me on August 7th, 2011 10:53 am

    Linda was fired and it was no fault of hers…it was the good old boy network and marty and his friend Wendall Hall….maybe Linda will get a good lawsuit going against a joke of a radio station….is this new girl posing for a playboy ad or what

  16. Jay Listener on August 7th, 2011 9:19 am

    Not sure what happened to Linda, but I know she is missed by many. I stopped listening after she left….I did try to listen a couple of times, but Marty’s constant talk about the race track left me a little bored. Yeah, I agree about the pic of the new gal. She needs a little coverage and a sandblaster. Linda was real down to earth. Miss you girl!

  17. Someonewhoknows on August 7th, 2011 12:40 am

    Well, well, well Linda look what happens when you do something bad to someone and you think that no one’s looking. Post a reply and tell everyone what you did. I know what happened and I will spill the beans if you decide to lie. This woman is horribly bitter. I am actually a listener again since she is gone. I would have rather died than listen to Wxbm while she was there. She made me want to throw up. Way to go WXBM yeaaaa. I actually like your station again. Oh by the way, I love Lindsey Marie. She is sweet. This is not a personal attack, only the truth!

  18. dcat on August 6th, 2011 11:52 pm

    I heard she was fired because she talked about her religion on air, and some people complained about it.

  19. Atmore on August 6th, 2011 9:56 pm

    What kind of picture is that to introduce yourself to listners? Is that her Facebook photo from a long night of clubbing? LOL

    Personally I do not care for her already she comes across as a 20 something who can only share information about clothes and shoes. I would prefer to have Linda back but thanks to Lynn West she is gone.

    I will be switching to CAT Country instead after almost 20 yrs of listening only to WXBM.

  20. Angi B. on August 6th, 2011 9:31 pm

    I have been a listener of WXBM for many years, and to wake up, turn the radio on, and listen to Marty & Linda’s morning show; could really get someones day started. Linda always knew how to make the morning show lively. I don’t know what has happened, but I wish someone would come out with it… Linda, you will be missed very much… Anyway, congrats Lindsey…

  21. bullwinkle on August 6th, 2011 5:35 pm

    Cat country is a joke wxbm will always be our areas country station.

  22. beachbum72 on August 6th, 2011 5:01 pm

    To all you self-rightous people saying you don’t listen anymore…how do you know she didn’t quit??? You don’t.

  23. dnutjob1 on August 6th, 2011 4:33 pm

    I dont listen anymore after Linda disappeared, and I am just going to stick with the CAT.

  24. frank on August 6th, 2011 3:44 pm

    I loved Linda L. and all i know is that the day she was fired the Law was there???

    Linda was the “LIFE OF THE PARTY”. I do not listen near as much now.

  25. another wants to know on August 6th, 2011 3:31 pm

    Yep, I’m another one wanting to know what happened to Linda Lawrence?
    She just vanishes and they never even breathe her name again. That tells me something not-so-nice must have happened, but I still think it’s extremely rude to act like the lady was never even there. Sorry, whether you liked her or not, Linda WAS a great radio host. I miss her laugh.

  26. i know on August 6th, 2011 1:21 pm

    Does anyone know what happened to Linda Lawrence???

  27. ABR on August 6th, 2011 12:17 pm

    Like the others, what happened to Linda??? Anybody know?

  28. Gary on August 6th, 2011 9:41 am

    We want Linda back!!! Noboby can replace her!

  29. CW on August 6th, 2011 9:25 am

    I’ve been wondering what happened to Linda, she was the main reason I used to listen to WXBM in the mornings.

  30. Gerri on August 6th, 2011 7:41 am

    What happened to Linda Lawrence? I knew she wasn’t there anymore, but never heard.

  31. charlie w. on August 6th, 2011 7:11 am

    At least linda is gone. What a fake!

  32. Janet on August 6th, 2011 6:51 am

    Does anyone know what happened to Linda? One day she was there and then the next, she was never spoken of again.

  33. boo on August 6th, 2011 5:27 am

  34. George on August 6th, 2011 4:56 am

    Dont listen much. What happened to Linda.

  35. mrc on August 6th, 2011 3:49 am

    She will NEVER be able to replace LINDA!!!!!!Still think they did her very wrong!

  36. bullwinkle on August 6th, 2011 1:28 am
