Joe Catenacci is the morning show host for The Big Talker FM. He has over a decade of experience on-air in the Wilmington metro market.
Part of the “Original Big Talker Team,” Joe began his career after college in the Port City as a news, weather, traffic and sports announcer on Sea-Comm’s “The Big Talker FM.” After the Big Talker’s hiatus from the Wilmington airwaves, Joe went to work as general news and sports reporter for the Port City Daily before making his return to the new “Wilmington’s Big Talker” as the host of the morning show.
#JoeKnows Wilmington and Southeastern North Carolina is not just a catchphrase, but a reality in his hyper-local, all things Wilmington and Brunswick County-based show. Since inception, Joe has had hundreds of local guests, including politicians, newsmakers, small business owners, and local charities. In fact, Joe has been responsible for raising thousands of dollars for local charities in the past 6 months alone.
In addition to his on-air duties at The Big Talker, Joe is a sports anchor on WWAY TV3 and is co-host of the “The 5th Quarter.” He can also be found on the sidelines at UNCW athletic events as a sports announcer and at Coastal Carolina University.
