I'm Chris Coleman, afternoon guy on WPUR Cat Country 107.3, Program Director of WPG Talk Radio 95.5 FM, and Production Director for Townsquare Media in Atlantic City (I make all of the commercials that you hear on the radio). I have spent practically all of my life right here in South Jersey. I started here in February 1998, as a one-day-per-week button pusher. 24+ years later, I'm still pushing those same buttons. I absolutely love to travel, I'm a certified weather nerd, a huge fan of old game shows, and I enjoy buying beer and wine simply based on what the label looks like.
