Kate Brandis

Underwriting Representative

Kate Brandis was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, and found her way home to Wilmington in 2005.  After graduating from Western Carolina University in 2002 with a B.S. in Communication/Electronic Media, she began a career in radio in Charlotte.  A desire for the coveted coastal lifestyle, and her husband's family's deep roots in the area brought her to Wilmington to begin the next chapter in her life.  After 11 years in the media industry, with experience in radio, print/publishing, and cable TV advertising sales, she is proud and excited to begin her service as an Underwriting Representative for WHQR -a station that she truly loves and believes in.  A self-proclaimed "NPR junkie", Kate is looking forward to helping local 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 4 year old son, Quayde.   She enjoys music, film, writing, cooking, and crafting.  She is also an animal lover, with three dogs and a cat.
