Untitled Document

Tommy Chuck has risen through the ranks of Clear Channel Top 40 stations during most of last decade, culminating with his appointment as PD at the legendary WFLZ/Tampa in 2007. Today Tommy serves as PD of WFLZ and WMTX, as well as the Digital Director for the Tampa cluster. Always insightful and profound, Tommy shares his keen perspectives with us in this week’s Cover Story.

Question of the Week asks: What is the one thing you covet most at your radio station and why is this so important to you? Plus, Hot Shots and the FMQB History page. [more]
