Bio:

Chuck Whitaker here, born and raised in the Augusta, GA area! I’m passionate about everything outdoors, especially being around the water. I love swimming, kayaking, bicycling, hiking and of course spending time with family & friends.  My favorite things are happy dogs, kids playing, football, banana pudding…okay, I’m getting hungry. Favorite music: I like it all from Sinatra to Led Zeppelin to Bruno Mars and everything in between. I’ve always said “there’s only two kinds of music, good and bad.”

Bio

Hi, it’s Josh Gears, your morning host. I love watching automobile auctions on one of the many vast cable channels in the universe. Can’t afford any of these cars, but I like living vicariously through those who do! I also try to read every magazine I’m subscribed to; but since my wife and I have a new baby, that pile is getting bigger and bigger. I’d also like to state that I’m an experienced skydiver… but that would be stretching the truth a bit, since I am afraid of heights.

Hey there, I’m Scott Evans, Josh Gears’ on-air partner! My favorite type of music is probably categorized as “Hot AC”. I’m a huge Maroon 5, Rob Thomas and Sting fan. My original goal was to be a professional drummer, which I did for a while. But I realized I like the music business but didn’t like the life of a traveling musician. So, I’m one of the only people who got into radio for the “security and stability”. Thanks for listening!
