Chuck’s extensive experience, creativity, connection to community and overall love of Radio made him the perfect choice for this important daypart. Chuck’s recognizable and distinctive voice will once again be heard in our region, and teaming up Chuck Edwards with Madison June is sure to be a winning combination. I can’t wait to hear this dynamic team in Morning Drive”.
