On Thursday, September 22, 2011 we lost a beloved member of the WGAR family, as Chuck Collier passed away unexpectedly. He was an Ohio boy, whose broadcasting career on the Cleveland airwaves spanned more than 3 decades.
He loved radio and he loved Cleveland... and Cleveland, along all of us here at WGAR and Clear Channel Cleveland, truly loved him. Anyone who ever listened to or met Chuck knew instantly the kind and caring human being he was.
To his wife, his children and entire Collier family ...our sincere condolences, along with our gratitude for sharing Chuck with us.
Rest in peace Chuck...rest in peace.
I'm on vacation starting tomorrow & through next week. I love my job & the people I work with, but, ya' know, sometimes one has to just get away. So, I'm going to do that. I always head to southern Ohio to spend time. That's where I was born & raised. Friends have asked why I don't go to Aruba, the Bahamas, etc. I tell them that mooching off my cousin is cheaper & I enjoy seeing the folks I grew up with. I sleep too much & always eat too much. So I come back fat & lazy. That's a great combination. Of course, that's what I am right now, so bring me another piece of pie. It just hit me, I owe my cousin some money. I guess I'd better pay him back. I'd hate to sleep in a car all next wek!! See you in a week!!
