WHRO Public Media Welcomes “Classic” Sound, Chaz Stuart, and Interim Host,
Anthony McSpadden, to the WHRO 90.3 FM’s Lineup

NORFOLK, VA (January 8, 2016) – WHRO Public Media is excited to announce some new additions to the WHRO-FM’s Classical Air Staff. We are pleased to welcome local talent, Chaz Stuart, who will host the station on weekend mornings. In addition, while WHRO continues its national search, Anthony McSpadden, former host of Afternoon Delights, will host Midday Classics over the next few months starting in February.

Stuart earned his Master’s in Music Composition from the prestigious Peabody Institute in Baltimore. As a Richmond native, he now lives in Norfolk with his wife and serves as the Manager of Database Systems with the Virginia Arts Festival.

McSpadden recently returned to his home state of Texas to head up KMFA Classically Austin. In early February, he will host and program Midday Classics, weekdays from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. remotely, while WHRO continues its national search for a permanent host.

"Chaz is truly a unique talent and an exciting addition to WHRO-FM's legendary lineup of Dwight Davis, Dr. Wayla Chambo, and Dr. Raymond Jones. And we could not be more excited to re-welcome Anthony to the team. We hope all of WHRO's members and listeners will join us in welcoming Chaz and Anthony," stated Chuck Doud, WHRO's Director of Radio and Audience Strategy.

Listeners can tune in live on WHRO 90.3FM, WHRO.org and WHRO's Media App.
