eQB COVER STORY

Tommy Chuck, PD WFLZ & WMTX, Tampa Bay


It’s safe to say it was Tommy Chuck’s birthright to get involved in the radio industry. From, as Tommy puts it, “birth to high school,” he was involved in the family business at WEMB/WXIS in Erwin, TN. No not Z100/New York or KIIS/LA, but certainly a start. It didn’t take a company like Clear Channel long to realize they had a very talented programmer on its hands as Tommy progressed through the ranks and the secondary markets, rising to the occasion at every turn. He now sits at the legendary WFLZ and also at WMTX, wearing a few crucial hats of responsibility and leading the Tampa cluster to its winning ways.[more]

PROGRAMMING TO WIN
Say It Isn’t So, Joe

This week's Programming To Win is a short and sweet anecdote from Bob Quick, who relates the tale of a broadcaster friend who was criticized for interrupting World Cup coverage with a severe weather warning. Quick reminds us that serving the public's best interests should always be a broadcaster's goal.[more]
