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, I’m Liz Bell, a single mom to 2 gorgeous girls! I love throwing theme parties, read that as ‘Pinterest addict.’  I believe there is no better feeling than a sloppy ponytail and yoga pants. I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle and my partner, Chris Tyler.

Chris Tyler here!  I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife!  I run marathons, but in real life I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool.  And I’m a huge sports fan.  It’s hard for me to choose a favorite type of music!  I like many different types!  Except maybe Gangsta Rap.  I have to draw the line somewhere.

Bio:

Karl Southcott here!  I’m a giant movie fan, and love everything from the classic films to all the new exciting flicks.  When I’m not in a movie theater I like to hang with my family, especially around water, I think I’m part fish.  I have two small boys that keep me busy, let me tell you!  One of my very favorite things is sharing music on the radio with our listeners. I love everything from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars.  It’s such a kick!
