Atlanta Radio Host Moby Loses Battle with Stomach Cancer
Atlanta Country radio host James “Moby” Carney, who was inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame in 2011, has lost his battle with stage 4 stomach cancer. He was 69. Moby was a 40-year veteran air personality who worked in Rock radio for ten years then moved to Atlanta and WKHX (Kicks 101.5), where he proceeded to win a major morning battle in the Country format and enjoy success for the next decade.
Moby, who retired in 2016, was the recipient of numerous national Air Personality awards, including winning Billboard’s Major Market Country Morning Show of the Year five times. He formed his own syndication company, The Moby Network, in 2004 and was heard on Country stations around the nation.
