About Chuck

My philosophy

Be a positive and inspiring leader.  Don’t get too high during the highs, too low during the lows.  Ask questions of your listeners.  Respect their answers.  Develop a plan to give them what they want.  Pay attention to detail.  Value and work with quality, talented people.  A Cluster Brand Manager, Program Director or Consultant is an artist with a blank canvas.  Hear it in your mind.  Continually coach specifics.  Give your people your time.  Do regular aircheck sessions.  Have monthly programming team meetings.  A leader’s job is really about giving your team a path and confidence.  Dream.  Have fun.  Always be honest.

My approach

Every aspect of your radio station goes to making the brand. It’s a combination of science, art and gut. I’ll work positively and energetically to coach and give confidence to your team on every detail of it, specific to your station and market - music, mornings, marketing, digital and social. You can’t fake it - the vibe we create at the radio station internally is the vibe listeners hear externally.
