Charlie Tuna is new voice of KDOC-TV LA


Charlie Tuna has worked as morning drive personality for more stations and formats than anyone in LA radio history: Top 40, AC, Hot AC, Oldies, Talk, Sports Talk, Country, and has weekends on earth on CBS Radio’s Oldies K-Earth KRTH-FM LA.

Now he’s added Ellis Communications’ Independent KDOC-TV Anaheim/LA.

“We are thrilled to have such a well-known Los Angeles personality as the voice of KDOC-TV”, says John Manzi, President and GM of KDOC. “So many of our viewers have grown up listening to Charlie that he seemed like a natural fit for us”.

In 1990, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honored Charlie with his own Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, January 10, 1990. Charlie was the first KHJ Boss Jock to receive a Star on the Walk of Fame, and was inducted in 2008 into the National Radio Hall of Fame. He was inducted into his home state Nebraska Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame in 1999.

Tuna was heard around the world daily on the Armed Forces Radio Network for a 25 year – 6000 show run from 1971 to 1996, as well as on numerous nationally syndicated radio shows, since the early 70’s. He’s now heard across the U.S., Canada and internationally on his 5 hour daily and weekend shows, plus a daily Hollywood Minute entertainment feature from Black Card Radio Syndication.

Charlie’s also set to debut later this summer on PBS TV stations across the country as DJ Charlie Luna on Moon FM in the Shushybye TV series for pre-schoolers.
