On-Air Announcer

Born in Marion…Chuck grew up in the Cross Mill Community and went to high school in Pleasant Gardens. When Chuck was in high school he played in a band. He loved music but figured out pretty quickly that he couldn’t make it as a musician. He went to WBRM to record a demo for his band and met a disc jockey who just happened to be Dan Deaton, our own Dan In The Morning, and decided if he couldn’t be in a band at least he could play the songs on the radio. As they say, the rest is history.

Chuck went to radio school in Atlanta and Nashville. His career has taken him all across the southeast – from Charleston, SC to Memphis, TN to Columbia, SC to Greensboro, NC and back to Asheville, NC.

Chuck was voted Western North Carolina’s favorite Disc Jockey five consecutive years by the Asheville Citizen Times readers.

Chuck’s career has been fun (how many folks can say that about their work?) and has given him the opportunity to meet the Rolling Stones, ZZ Top, Mariah Carey and one of the greatest country music artists of all time, Loretta Lynn. Over the years Chuck has met a lot of great people – listeners, colleagues and artists – many who are still friends today.

Chuck is certainly happy to be back at WBRM in his hometown of Marion!
