After 35 years of forecasting weather at abc27, Chuck "hung up his barometer" for good in May 2008 and moved down the hall to begin his new career as a feature reporter.

The job he took originally with abc27, then WTPA-TV, in 1973 was his first in television broadcasting. His early duties included anchoring and reporting news, but when assigned to do weather forecasts he soon became a viewer favorite. Chuck brought a unique blend of warmth and humor to his forecasts, leading to his being voted the "top television personality" and "favorite weather forecaster" by the readers of Harrisburg Magazine several years in a row.

A native of Lewistown, Pa, Chuck served four years in the United States Navy and, upon his discharge in 1970, earned his degree in Radio-Television Broadcasting from Penn State University.

Away from his broadcasting duties, Chuck enjoys jazz, yard work and hiking with his golden retriever. He is also involved with fund raising for United Cerebral Palsy, Hospice of Central Pennsylvania, Perry County Literacy Council, and the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. Chuck resides outside of Duncannon with wife Carol.
