Chuck Southcott has been a dominant force in Los Angeles radio for a quarter of a century. He’s been both Program Director and air personality at KGIL, KPRZ, KMPC, KJQI, KKJZ and KKLA in Los Angeles and has worked with such stellar talents as Robert W. Morgan, Wink Martindale, Gary Owens, Charlie Tuna, Jim Lange, “Sweet Dick” Whittington, Dick Whittinghill and Peter Marshall, among others.

Chuck Southcott was named Los Angeles Times “Disc Jockey of the Year” and received both the Billboard and Gavin awards as national “Program Director of the Year.” While with KGIL that station was named “Radio Station of the Year” by Billboard magazine. While at KMPC that station was given the Marconi Award by the NAB as “Radio Station of the Year.”

Broadcasters know Chuck Southcott’s warm, knowledgeable presentation of the greatest music ever made by way of his daily network programs as well as the memorable “biographies in sound” of Johnny Mathis, Henry Mancini, Duke Ellington, Steve Allen, Milton Berle and Nat King Cole as well as the internationally syndicated weekly show “Musical.” In fact, the great Peggy Lee gave her last extended radio interview to Chuck at her home in Bel Air, California.

In his spare time Chuck recently served as President of the highly respected Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters as well as with the National Leukemia Broadcast Council and on the SAG/AFTRA Los Angeles Board.
