A Board nominated honour, the OAB Hall of Fame is presented to individuals who have spent most of their careers working for private broadcasters and demonstrated a commitment to the highest standards of broadcast excellence.
With 51 years in the Canadian Broadcasting industry, Chuck has worked his way from the ground up, beginning his professional career on-air in 1965.  His on-air hosting included stops at four stations, culminating with five years at the iconic 1050 CHUM.  Over the span of his career, Chuck has crossed Canada to work as an on-air personality, program director, broadcast consultant, and has also held various executive positions.  Most recently, he held the position of Executive Vice President, Rogers Toronto Radio Cluster.  Chuck currently operates his own consulting company, Chuck McCoy International Media Services.
In addition to his career achievements, Chuck put his many talents to work contributing on industry boards.  He was a founding director and board member of FACTOR, Chairman of the Board for Radio Starmaker Fund, member of the CAB, CRTC Review of Radio Committees in ’85 & ’97, and served on the Numeris’ Board of Directors. Chuck was inducted into the Canadian Music and Broadcasting Industry Hall of Fame, receiving the Allan Waters Broadcast Lifetime Acheivement Award in 2008.
