Chuck Leavens

Jazz 89.5-2 host

Chuck has been an air personality since 1970 and been heard nationally for many years as the voice of many commercial products. His love of music knows no bounds, with experience in many music formats, as his love of music is wide open to the sounds of life.

He has known many artists and grew up with a few. He appreciates and promotes jazz to a new generation of people, seeking the special sounds of the mind, heart, and spirit.

Chuck comes to Jazz 89.5-2 from WDUQ, where he held the title of Director of Engineering and IT, but the actual work was more like Chief Scientist. He was the voice of WDUQ since 1989. Chuck is the 2008 recipient of the Engineering Achievement Award from the Association of Public Radio Engineers.

He is a recording engineer, documenting much of Pittsburgh's incredible jazz heritage, and is also a musician, writer, and poet, playing in various groups over the years.
