Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Charlie Huero and I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I have been in radio since 1985 while I was in college at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse! (GO CHIEFS) Either I really love what I do, or I have not learned my lesson! I have worked in Milwaukee, San Diego (twice), Los Angeles, San Antonio, and here in Phoenix since 1998. I have been married to my wonderful wife Sandra for 25 years, and we have 2 girls. Mia is 21 and going to ASU and Sofia is 16 and attending Sunny Slope High School. They get their looks and their book smarts from their mother for sure! My family is very important to me. Family has always been important. They have supported my career (and all the moving around) over the years, and I am blessed to have them! I got into radio because I have always loved to entertain and create great experiences for people. I like to make people laugh and have a good time. Over my career, I have been involved in many events not only from the “disc jockey” point of view but also from the person who plans and executes the promotions. I am very passionate about music and sports. I have a huge collection of music at home from rock to classical and everything in between! I love to golf. I wish I had more time to go more often.
In addition to this radio career and all of the family time, I am also very involved in the community. I work with the Purple Society which is a 501c3 organization that raises awareness and funds for children and families dealing with pediatric cancer. I am also active with Special Olympics Arizona and the Foundation For Blind Children. Giving back is just as important and my whole family is involved too!
Now, I am the Assistant Program Director and afternoon on-air personality at 94.5 KOOL FM. I am very excited about this adventure. This is the music I grew up on. This is the music you can sing all the words to. There is very much passion here and amongst my co-workers. KOOL is fun. KOOL is memories. KOOL is a lifestyle. KOOL….is KOOL. I am honored to be a part of this extension of my “family”!
