Operations Manager/Program Director
Brett became WBZC’s Operations Manager/Program Director on December 19, 2005. In August of 2006, the station flipped to The Pulse of Burlington and its new main format became a Top 40/Dance leaning station. During the next 5 years WBZC would be recognized as one of the top non-commercial/college radio stations in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area. The station would receive numerous finalist nominations at the Philadelphia A.I.R. (Achievement In Radio) Awards, Best Radio Station at the International Dance Music Awards and Best Dance Station at Promo Only’s Summer Sessions.
Brett’s number one goal after being hired at Burlington County College was to bring the students back to the radio station. Since 2006 over 450 students have gone through the station’s training program and become WBZC disc jockeys. Several former student DJ’s have gone on to careers in commercial radio stations such as 97.5 The Fanatic, 100.3 The Beat, Sirius Satellite Radio and also working for professional sports organizations such as the Trenton Devils.

Brett covered the 76ers during their run at the World Championship and interviewed the likes of Allen Iverson, Hugh Douglas, Eric Lindros, Shaquille O’Neil and Michael Jordan. From WRTI, Brett went on to work at Sports Radio 610 WIP, where he became a producer/remote engineer. He would go on to produce Flyers and 76ers games, Eagles Pregame Tent show, Eagles Post game show and the infamous Wing Bowl.
