Charlie Van Dyke
One of the greatest jocks of all time, Charlie Van Dyke came to WLS from KHJ in 1972 to succeed Larry Lujack who had left for WCFL in July. Charlie only spent a short time there. He left WLS to return to KHJ in July 1973 and was followed in morning drive by Fred Winston. Originally from Dallas, Charlie started at KLIF when he was just 15. He worked at great stations such as CKLW, KFRC, KHJ, WDGY and WRKO. He was a frequent guest host for Kasey Kasem (a total of 31 times) on American Top 40. He later succeeded the late Robert W Morgan at KRTH in Los Angeles after his passing. Charlie is one of the leading voice talents for radio and tv stations in America. His voice has been heard by millions doing news intros and teases throughout the country. Charlie lives in Arizona.
