Chuck Custer is the pasty half of the highly-rated "Chuck and Kelly” morning team. Actually, in terms of gross weight, he's two-thirds of the team. Chuck has been with WGY since 1984 and for years was the on-air partner of the legendary Don Weeks. Chuck came to WGY after growing up in Pittsfield, Mass, going to college in Boston and working in Utica, Charleston W.V. and Providence. Chuck became WGY News Director in 1994 and later added Program Director duties. Under Chuck's leadership, News Radio WGY achieved high ratings, great results for its advertisers and expanded an already impressive commitment to local charitable organizations. The National Association of Broadcasters has honored WGY with its prestigious Crystal Award for exemplary public service. Chuck and staff also have earned more than 60 awards for excellence in journalism, including four national Edward R. Murrow Awards.
In 2018, Chuck and Kelly Lynch began their eighth year of “Chuck and Kelly”. The show, which airs weekdays from 5:30am-9am, has been an unqualified success.
Despite all those honors, Chuck's greatest source of pride and joy are his boys, Cory and Scott. Chuck lives in Latham with his lovely wife Linda who really could have done much better.
Chuck enjoys the Capital Districts local fine dining, live music, sports, and an occasional zip-line or outdoor adventure.
