Veteran PHILADELPHIA radio personality and traffic reporter ROD CARSON will be celebrating 50 years in the radio business this summer.
CARSON, one of the founders of SHADOW TRAFFIC, started at WCOJ-A/COATESVILLE, PA (west suburban PHILADELPHIA) while still in high school and went on to be one of the WIBG-A/PHILADELPHIA "WIBBAGE Good Guys" and a personality at WSNI (SUNNY 104.5), WIOQ (Q102), WPEN-A, and WWDB, and is best known for his long tenure (starting in 1977 and continuing today) as traffic maven at CBS News KYW-A/PHILADELPHIA.
CARSON's latest exploits involve becoming a guitar collector, adding, "Now, all I have to do is learn how to play them. It's never too late to learn new things."
