GREENSBORO, N.C. — Producer Whitney announced Monday morning that she will be taking time off from her full-time position at 107.5 KZL to promote her “No Body Shame Campaign.”

Whitney Thore, better known across the Piedmont as “Producer Whitney” on 107.5 KZL’s Jared and Katie morning radio show, became a viral sensation with her “Fat Girl Dancing” videos posted on YouTube.

The videos are part of a “No Body Shame Campaign” that promotes self-confidence.

On Monday, Thore told listeners about the multiple opportunities the videos and campaign have provided her. So after two years with KZL, Thore will take some time off from her full-time position as producer to explore her options.

She says she will be checking in with the show as her schedule allows, but will not be in the studio every day.

Thore said she was beyond grateful to KZL, her co-workers and her listeners.

Last month, Thore told FOX8 the most important part of her “No Body Shame Campaign” is encouraging people to find what makes them happy and pursue it.
