Born and raised in Fort Wayne, Carrie Bud Wellman has been working in radio her entire career. While working in marketing at WANE-TV, Carrie took a part time radio job playing big band music on the weekends. The radio bug bit!
From there she worked as a news reporter/anchor and eventually landed a job with WAJI as a morning show co-host and news person. The radio biz took Carrie to Michigan, then back to Fort Wayne where she returned to Sarkes Tarzian to work with Classic Hits 101.7.
While Ball State University provided an amazing education, it was working with Jim Reed and riding his coattails (as he is so fond of saying) that created the foundation on which to build her career. Jim & Carrie are very proud to be going on their 24th year as a morning show team, so maybe there’s something to be said for Jim’s coattails!
Listen to Carrie Bud from 12pm – 3pm on Classic Hits 101.7!
