Looks like CHUCK MARQUISS was
their old standby when jocks dropped from the list. He was in and out of
the lineup as needed. He didn't mind it as he did it just for fun.
He'd rather do news stuff.
Sadly, Chuck died 5-6 years ago.
Stroke.

very sad to hear about Charles Martin's passing some years back. he was a consummate professional broadcaster whom i deeply respected. Mr. Martin should have been up there pitching radio in the big leagues with that wonderful vocal talent of his which was wholly suited to the ranks of intelligent discourse as a fully competent newscaster.

Charles was a hell of a nice guy. He was our regular newsman. When we were short a jock he was our fill-in guy.

regarding Charles Martin's post-KMEN career:
i seem to recall hearing him do newscasts on Los Angeles radio sometime around the 1980's or 1990's when i was DX'ing A.M. stations up here in Northern California...
to Johnny: could that station i heard Mr. Martin doing the news have been "KFI 640" (it's what comes to mind)???

Yes, Charles did some newscasts at KFI, I heard him several times on the weekends. We didn't keep in touch, but, I knew he passed away quite a few years ago.

thanks, Johnny, for the information... i guess my old hobby of airchecking long-distance AM stations back in the 20th century kept this One up-to-date (as much as possible) on some of our former San Bernardino radio colleagues.
