Operations Director, Rubber City Radio Group, Akron.
Chuck began his radio career in 1972, awarded a First Class Radio Operator’s license and going to work as a transmitter and studio technician. In 1975 he was the first and only production/creative services director for M105 Rock Radio in Cleveland, later WMJI. Although much of the job it was technical, his musical training allowed him to innovate new styles of audio design.
In 1988 he joined the staff of WKDD in Akron. There he won several awards for creativity including three ADDY (American Advertising Federation) awards for excellence. Chuck moved to programming in 1993, leading WKDD to a National Billboard Station of the Year Award and brought ratings success until leaving in 2001. Chuck then began writing a series of mystery-thriller novels with radio as the backdrop. His first, The Radio Murders: The Collectors was published this fall. Chuck joined WAKR and Rubber City Radio Group in 2006, becoming operations director for the group in 2008.
