Kate Brandis

Underwriting Representative

Kate Brandis grew up in Charlotte, NC, and graduated from Western Carolina University in 2002 with a B.S. in Communication/Electronic Media. She began a career in radio in Charlotte, but a desire for the coveted coastal lifestyle, and her husband's family's deep roots in the area brought her to Wilmington in 2005. After 11 years in the media industry, with experience in radio, print/publishing, and cable TV advertising sales, she joined WHQR as an Underwriting Representative. A self-proclaimed "NPR junkie", Kate has enjoyed helping local and regional businesses and organizations understand how WHQR can be an effective and impactful addition to their marketing strategy.   Kate resides in Wilmington, with her husband, Darwin, and their 5 year old son, Quayde.   She enjoys music, film, writing, cooking, and crafting.  She is also an animal lover, with three dogs and a cat.  Contact Kate:     Kbrandis@whqr.org
