Chuck Roads

Whether the commute is as Pretty as a Speckled Pup or as Ugly as a Mud Fence, I will let you know what's going on & if you need to change your route. Much obliged for watching!

I was born and raised in West Virginia, and enjoyed the usual childhood activities– football, basketball etc. but unlike most children my age, I had a passion for broadcasting. Starting at age 5, I would routinely call out plays when I was shooting hoops, playing baseball, or even just watching sports on television. One day during my high school career, I was mimicking the local football announcer Mike Kidd who happened to be standing right behind me. Fortunately, Kidd saw my potential and at the beginning of the next football season, I was right next to the announcer doing the color commentary for football at the ripe age of 17.

I graduated from UNC-Charlotte in the early 90's, and in late 1998 I started my own traffic company. For the last 16 years Charlotte motorists have relied on my traffic reports to get them where they needed to go. When I'm not at work, I enjoy playing golf, basketball, or Madden NFL. If I'm watching TV, it's either Fox 46 Charlotte, or the Andy Griffith Show.
