Program Director

This Pittsburgh native first came to Corpus Christi in 1976 while serving in the U.S. Navy. Chuck worked in Corpus Christi radio in the early 80’s before moving to stations in San Antonio, Akron, Cleveland and Pittsburgh. He returned to Corpus Christi in 1996 and is glad to be back in the Coastal Bend. Besides being one of our top On-Air talents, Chuck is KFTX’s Program Director. His “Morning Radio Broadcast” is peppered with wit and local perspectives as well as information you can use as you go about your workday. He enjoys playing the music he loves – REAL COUNTRY!
