a Sportscaster for WCBM and WFBR in Baltimore, Maryland. He was the voice of the Colts
(with Artie Donovan), the Orioles and Baltimore Blast. He was hard working, loud, brash,
funny, intelligent, truthful (even when it hurt), a great story teller and speaker, a
good friend and a family man. He gave so much to the city of Baltimore where he was
born and raised. He stayed true to his roots, his town. His career was as colorful
as the sweaters he wore, and almost every one loved "Choley," "The Coach!" I should know,
I'm his only granddaughter. Unfortunately, for Baltimore, his fans, friends and family,
Charley "called a cab to heaven" on July 3, 1995, after a hard-fought match with cancer.
