Chris Rhoads

I started my radio career in Ocala back in 1989. From there I went to Orlando for 17 years and then up to Jacksonville for 5. I’m happy to be here on The Coast doing Late Afternoons from 2-7pm.

I play guitar and love hanging at the beach with my beautiful wife and two children. I’m a Country fan and going to concerts. I’m also a big sports fan, cheering on #24 and #48 in NASCAR,  the Canadians and Lightning in hockey, the Bucs, Jags and Noles in Football and Phil and Adam when golfs on TV.
