When All News 106.7 FM afternoon anchor Melissa Carter decided to leave Q100’s Bert Show at the end of her contract in 2011, she reflected on cold calling Locke, her on air competition and a radio mentor, to talk through her career crossroads. “Vikki Locke knew of me but we had never broken bread together, we had never bonded over spinach dip. But Vikki Locke spent 40 minutes with me on the phone while I’m sitting in my car in the parking lot of my doctor’s office and helped me frame out what I was going to do."
At 7:25 Wednesday morning, Q100 news director Melissa Carter announced to listeners she would depart The Bert Show next month at the end of her current contract. A decade ago, Carter became the first out lesbian on the city's morning airwaves when she joined Bert Weiss, Jeff Dauler and former "Real World Seattle" cast member Lindsay Brien to debut The Bert Show in March 2001.
