Carolina Panthers

WBT Sports reporter Sharon Thorsland joins Bo Thompson with her take on the Cam-Is-Back Carolina Panthers 34-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals and the Charlotte Hornets defeating the Golden State Warriors 106-102 at the hive last night.

For Carolina Panther fans, this past week still probably feels like a dream and rightfully so, especially after Sunday. As former Panther and current NFL on FOX analyst Greg Olsen said on Friday on the FNZ airwaves, this Cam Newton-Carolina Panthers reunion was something that most never saw coming and that no one could have imagined happening so quickly either. Newton signed a one-year deal with the team on Thursday and traveled to Arizona in a game where most didn't even know if he was going to be active and felt he would be extremely limited if he was. Newton was pretty limited playing just eight snaps in the game, but no one could have predicted the course of how things would happen on Sunday.

In the first hour of the show, Vince chats with WFNZ's Chris McClain about Cam Newton's return debut with the Carolina Panthers. He also checks in on closing arguments of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and talks about Steve Bannon being taken into custody for the Jan 6th riots.

The Carolina Panthers saved their most impressive victory of the season for Cam Newton’s return engagement, as they took advantage of the opposition’s weakened state in a 34-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Carolina used a limited package with Newton, which included mostly run & pass option plays to keep Arizona’s defense off balance. Haason […]

So things got a lot more interesting for the Panthers this week. What started out as a normal game week against the 8-1 Cardinals turned into the return of Superman. Former MVP quarterback Cam Newton is back for at least the rest of the season after starter Sam Darnold suffered a shoulder injury that will […]

WBT Charlotte's Most Beloved John Hancock joins Bo Thompson in studio to talk about Cam Newton rejoining the Carolina Panthers, Hancock's Bike Drive for Kids returning for 2021 (at Bank of America Stadium on Tuesday, December 7, from 10 AM to 7 PM,) and a Big Weekend event rundown.

Jonathan Stewart shared a backfield with Cam Newton from 2011 to 2017, as the pair combined to run for 8,899 yards and 83 touchdowns while helping lead the Panthers to one of the most successful stretches in franchise history. On Friday morning, Stewart dropped by the Mac Attack to talk about his former teammate's return to Charlotte and discuss the impact that it will have on the locker room. "It makes people want to come to work, man," Stewart said regarding Newton. "The Panthers have guys whose first year of professional football they were locked in quarantine and they have to go through all of these different protocols as rookies and that's all they know. So getting Cam's energy, getting his presence, his wisdom, his insight in that locker room is gonna be a game-changer."

WBT afternoon host Brett Winterble joins Bo Thompson talking about Cam Newton rejoining the Carolina Panthers and reacting to the moves political candidates are making to be a part of the recently redrawn North Carolina Congressional District 13. 

It's safe to say former Carolina Panthers tight end and current NFL on FOX analyst Greg Olsen was a little caught off guard by his former teammate and now new (or old) Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's return to the franchise. Hot off the red-eye for Los Angeles, Olsen joined the guys over at the Mac Attack on Friday to explain why he was so shocked. "I have to be honest, I did not see this coming. It just seemed too good to be true." Olsen also talked about just how palpable the excitement is right now in the Charlotte area. "You can't really describe it, unless you live in Charlotte, what this means to the fanbase and to the organization. It's a day that no one thought ever might be possible even in a going-away party, you know like a retirement, let alone him being in uniform, under center."
