By way of an introduction, welcome to the New Rewind 100.9! I’m Chuck Igo (pronounced “eye-go”), the morning host. If you’re new to Rewind 100.9, a little background on me for your edification:
I was born and raised in the Boston area, so I’m no stranger to New England. I arrived in Maine in 1978 when my Navy duties brought me to the Brunswick Naval Air Station. I have been in broadcasting for almost 35 years, having started right here in Portland when the AM dial was full of music stations, and while I was still in the Navy, working a weekend shift on The Mighty 970 WCSH. From there, I was hired at WGAN-AM for weekend work, and upon my honorable discharge from the Navy in 1981, fulltime. Having made our home in South Portland, my wife Debbie and I have been married for 31 years, and we’ve raised three pretty wonderful children – two of whom are South Portland educators and our youngest is entering his “middler” year at Northeastern.
My radio career has allowed me to experience management duties and creative services as well as being on-air in the Portland area, with a dozen years of full-time & part-time air work in Boston radio along the way. For the past ten years, it’s been my privilege to be the morning host here on WYNZ-FM.
For those who have been with us all along, THANK YOU for your patience and support during our time of transition. It is truly appreciated!
I hope you’ll enjoy the Amazing Variety from the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s, and that you’ll join us for lots of fun stuff yet to come as we continue to build the New Rewind 100.9!
** On a personal note: I will be away on vacation through July 1 as our family prepares for my daughter Emily’s wedding.
