Member Bob Charger wrote for us, his own bio. Who knows more about Bob Charger than Bob Charger, right? Well, anyhow, here's what he said:
I was born and raised in South Philadelphia and began my career as a teenager on a small radio station in South Jersey. After graduating from Southern High School, I wrote a music column for three area newspapers and hosted a weekly entertainment show on cable television. Moving from station to station, I landed at the legendary “Wibbage” WIBG Radio 99, another Philly giant 610 WIP (when they were the #1 music station) and eventually became a “Boss Jock” on Famous 56, WFIL. I also served as Music Director and Program Director for several stations, including 1380 WAMS, in Wilmington, Delaware.
Expanding to full time television in the South, I performed as a weather man, magazine co-host and morning show host for a local CBS affiliate and produced and hosted several game shows including “Music Mania.” Over the years, I lent my voice to several local and national commercials and infomercials. From acting in radio and television commercials, I progressed to acting in films and I am a proud member of the Screen Actors Guild. My credits include: “Rocky III,” “Rocky V,” “Mannequin ” “Mannequin on the Move” and “Philadelphia” to name a few.
