Chuck Duncan

General Manager
Chuck began his broadcasting career in local radio sales in Tucson, AZ

259 'radio years' ago (same as dog years). In 1985 Chuck accepted a position in national sales with Katz Radio's Chicago office and spent the next five years getting to know the national sales and advertising arena, along with a tremendous amount of top-notch station owners and operators.

In 1993 Duncan moved to network radio with the formation of the One-On-One Sports Radio Network, the nation's first 24/7/365 live SportsTalk radio network. One-On-One expanded into group ownership in 1997 with station acquisitions in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and Miami. In 2000 Duncan helped facilitate the sale of OOO to Paul Allen's Vulcan Sports Ventures through the acquisition of The Sporting News and the formation of Sporting News Radio. He remained with Allen's company through 2004. During this 11 year period Duncan was involved with multiple development initiatives including the 1994 World Cup Soccer US broadcasts, 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics, NFL Europe, national PBP rights deals with University of Michigan, University of Washington, USC, Boston Celtics, Arena Football and the American Forces Radio Network.

In 2005 Duncan launched a boutique production and distribution company in suburban Chicago, followed by the formation of Rocky Mountain Radio through the acquisition of a five-station Colorado cluster. In 2014 he joined Kovas Communications as General Manager of their Evanston-based 1590 WCGO. Following the February, 2014 acquisition of GAB Radio, the company is now poised to expand its content offerings through its Chicago outlet, while focusing on expansion of services made available through GAB.

While radio is one of Duncan's passions, every life needs positive counterbalance. Chuck serves as President of the Board for Chicago's non-profit Last Chance House, is involved with the Beagle Freedom Project and spends as much time with his family as possible. He plays acoustic guitar, does custom woodworking and continues his perpetual home remodeling project.

Dennis "Sonar" Greene

Director of Engineering
Sonar got his handle from his 5 years as a Sonar Technician in the US Navy. He served on the USS Anzio CG-68 and has been to 14 countries. While aboard he earned his "Shellback" qualification when he crossed the Equator just east of Africa on his way to Somalia. Sonar is a collector of Media. Although he is a major Cinephile he also listens to over 20 hours of audio a week on top of his normal duties as a production engineer. During the normal business day he and Kevin will go back and forth with quotes from many genres of pop culture to pass the time.
 
He takes pride in being the Jack of All Trades, combining different sciences to achieve the best operating and maintenance systems he can. Sonar knows so much about how sound travels in water and air that he has 2 credits in Oceanography. He spends at least 10% of his work week learning and teaching new technologies and practices to keep the team above the curve and current in the latest industry practices. Always ready to help, Sonar will walk anyone through their 1st, 2nd and 43rd setup of their studio and operation of it.
