Charley Barnes

Born in Alamagordo, NM – 1963 and haven’t been the same since, but, then neither is anyone who has ever dared get close to me. I reside in Greeley and a single Dad of three awesome kids: My tribe consists of my daughter Taylor Anne -18, and two sons Mason William -16 and Cade Thomas -13. My children are the most important thing in my life and I just can’t get enough of them!

I have been with Townsquare Media, Inc. since 1998 starting with the Morning Show on TRI-102 for several years before taking on the afternoon show here at K99 which you can hear live or online between 3P and 7P weekdays.

I started in radio at KBZZ in La Junta CO at the tender age of 15 and have basically been doing it ever since. I have worked in Texas, Kentucky, Kansas, Indiana, Arizona, Montana and Alaska. Yes, I was in Alaska for about 6 years living in Juneau right out of High School and eventually moved to Fairbanks to attend the University of Alaska and working full-time radio at the same time and spending my summers living in Wasilla and working radio in Anchorage: “L.A. on Ice.”

As far as hobbies go, I enjoy being on 2-wheels everyday of the year. Anytime is a good time to ride! I enjoy long road trips and camping off my bike, live music, long weekends with an open road and full tank of gas, friends, family and cool chilly cocktails on warm summer evenings! I love a good booming thunderstorm, lightning but hate slow drivers in the left lane, drivers who can’t keep up with the speed limit, spinach and snow!

If I haven’t answered your question or you just want to know more about me, please drop me a line anytime.

Schedule

M-Sa 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Charley Barnes on his first trip to Topeka on June 5, 2011. This was his way of expressing his right of free speech and invading the privacy of members of the Westboro Baptist Church at their own homes, church and law firm. His trip and the story he wrote after inspired the National group called Journey 4 Justice.
