Hi, my name is Chuck Baker, and I'm absolutely delighted to be a part of the Kickin' Country 103.1 team. I've been a radio personality working in various markets across Texas for many years. Seventeen of those years were spent in Bryan/College Station before coming to San Angelo in 2009. I came on board with Kickin' Country 103.1 in October 2013 as the afternoon air personality. I've transitioned to the mid-day show from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. I love interacting with our Kickin' Country listeners on air, on Facebook, at remote broadcasts and personal appearances. I personally know many Texas/Red Dirt artists and love playing their music, interviewing them, and bringing them on stage all around the Concho Valley. Thanks for listening, y'all!
