Chuck Carroll is a radio veteran, Weight Loss Champion, member of the Pro Football Writers of America and, above all else, a pro wrestling aficionado.
Carroll began his radio career in 2002 in Washington, D.C. He produced a nationally syndicated broadcast before transitioning to one of those “wacky morning sidekicks” on a classic rock station.
When the entrepreneurial spirit struck, he left traditional radio to begin covering professional football for his own company, which is where he met Adam Carriker.
Chuck was born August 28, 1983 in Norfolk, Va.
Radio was just one of Chuck’s passions growing up. He was also a baseball junkie, but it was his love of pro wrestling that would set the stage for 4th & Pain.
Some of his earliest childhood memories include watching pro wrestling at his grandmother’s house where cable TV was available!
Chuck knew what he wanted to be when he grew up — a pro wrestler. When he was 16 he found a pro wrestling training school and couldn’t sign up fast enough. He quickly learned that he wasn’t the most athletic person in the world, but also learned he had a gift of gab. With that, he became an announcer for the local promotion.
TNA Knockout Mickie James was also training at the school at the time. Chuck fondly recalls the time she almost crippled him with a chair during training.
Chuck’s career in pro wrestling also includes a brief stint announcing for Wrestling Hall of Famer Afa The Wild Samoan’s WXW Wrestling while he was living in Florida in the summer of 2011.
Outside of his career in radio, Chuck prides himself as a weight loss advocate. At just 5 feet 6 inches tall, he weighed 420 pounds before making the decision to change his life in 2009. Since that time, Chuck has lost 250 pounds and kept it off!
He currently serves as a fitness blogger and talent for CBS Radio in Washington DC.
