CUMULUS MEDIA taps WORCESTER/BOSTON radio pro CHUCK PERKS as PD/midday host of Classic Hits WWFX (100.1 THE PIKE)/WORCESTER. PERKS has been working for CUMULUS/WORCESTER in a part-time capacity, both on and off air.
CUMULUS VP/Programming VAL GARRIS said, “We’re fortunate to have someone of CHUCK’s caliber join CUMULUS at WWFX 100.1 FM THE PIKE in WORCESTER. His experience and knowledge of the market make him the perfect fit to lead THE PIKE as both a personality and programmer.”
VP/Market Mgr. BOB GOODELL said, “CHUCK PERKS is a consummate radio professional who cut his teeth working at WORCESTER/BOSTON rocker WAAF as an on-air personality and then assumed production director duties for WEEI/BOSTON, while working on-air at THE SPORTS HUB 98.5 FM in BOSTON. His passion for the product, paired with his breadth of experience across WORCESTER/BOSTON radio, make him the ideal choice for PD and midday personality on THE PIKE. CHUCK is a great addition to our staff and we welcome him to the team.”
PERKS said, “It’s a thrill to step up as PD and midday host of ‘THE PIKE’ in WORCESTER. It’s a dream job for me because I feel this was a job that I was born to do and to do it my hometown is even better. I look forward to working with the CUMULUS/WORCESTER team under the leadership of LANCE BALLANCE and BOB GOODELL.”
