How Do I Say Goodbye To Charles King?

Blog, Featured
December of 1990 a young, southern boy who had never even visited Iowa or Illinois (except for his interview at KWQC) began his career at the number one station in the Quad Cities. In case you hadn’t already guessed, that guy was me.  I was nervous, felt like I didn’t belong and wondered if I’d made a mistake.  It was an incredible opportunity to come to a number one station, in a part of the country where accents didn’t seem to exist and have a chance to further my career. Still, I was unsure, very unsure.  I came in. I did my job and tried to not let on that I was extremely homesick. Within a few weeks. Our desks were moved around in the newsroom and I was positioned…
