    Chuck is one of a kind. He possesses a great sense of humor, the ability to state his perspective directly and the compassion to care for others in his sphere of influence. He and his wife Georgia are a fantastic team. They have been close friends and partners in many community endeavors. Congrats to them both on this recognition.

    Congratulations Chuck. You’ve always been the consummate professional.
    I still enjoy watching your movie scene in “Anatomy of a Murder”.

    Congratulations Chuck. We’ve been watching you since you joined WBAY-TV and it’s no surprise that your peers regard you so highly. We are both very happy for you. Jim & Judy Sloan

  6. Thank you Chuck for mentoring so many young TV Journalists through the years. That’s why there’s a little bit of Chuck still broadcasting today.

    Congratulations!! I’ve watched you since a 5-year old wishing we could afford the “Orange Crush” that you advertised!!! Seems it came right before “Animal Kingdom”! You are a true professional and had a personality that seemed to get along with co-hosts, and especially George Graphos! You have a great sense of humor as well!! Blessings
