Charles "Chuck"[1] Dean Hayes[2][3] (born Charles Dean Fout[4]) (stage name: Chick McGee) is a radio personality who appears on The Bob & Tom Show. The name "Chick McGee" is a pseudonym connected with the Jack McGee character on The Incredible Hulk.[1]

Personal life[edit]

McGee was born November 26, 1957,[2][5] in London, Ohio. He has three children and has been married and divorced three times.

Education[edit]

McGee graduated from London High School in 1976.[4] McGee briefly "visited" The Ohio State University and graduated from an independent broadcast school in June 1976.[6]

Professional career[edit]

He began his career at a small, 1,000-watt radio station in West Virginia and held various on-air positions at stations in West Virginia and Ohio. Prior to joining the Bob and Tom Show he went by the name Chuck Michaelz.[7] On April 1, 1986, Chick joined The Bob & Tom Show.[8] In January 1995,[6][9] Chick left The Bob and Tom Show to become co-host of a show called Kevin & McGee at KGB-FM in San Diego, California. After six months in San Diego, McGee returned in July 1995[6] to his former job on The Bob & Tom Show.

The Bob and Tom Show[edit]

McGee joined The Bob & Tom Show on April 1, 1986, as the show’s announcer.[8] He eventually expanded his duties to include sports and humor.

Off the Air Podcast[edit]

McGee started podcasting on July 24, 2012.[10] It is regularly hosted by Chick, his (former) girlfriend Jessica Hooker, and producer Jason Hoffsetz. The podcast is an insightful look into his off air personality. Chick talks about Fat Kid Weekends with his girlfriend Jess, Anger Sweats, who he would never allow on his podcast, and great off air radio stories. He also offers a convenient "Cuss Count" with each episode. It was revealed in a very personal podcast with Dr. Will Miller that Chick and Jess were no longer romantically involved. While they are separated, the two both expressed hope to salvage the relationship in the future. In subsequent podcasts, both Chick and Jess expressed that they were more proud of the podcast with Dr. Will than any single piece of work in their careers.[11]
