That big, lovable guy who holds down the fort weekday mornings at Mid-West Family Broadcasting's WIRX Radio is packing up his worldly goods this week for a "too good to miss out on" opportunity with a couple of friends who are launching a new business on the south side of Las Vegas.
Rex Charger, who has hosted the morning show at Rock 107 since June of 2012, will mark his last day on the air this coming Friday, February 21st and will begin his new career on March 6th with the opening of The Gold Club near the largest outdoor mall in the Las Vegas metro called Town Square.
The Gold Club is a new bi-level Gentleman's Club and after hours dance club coming to the Vegas scene, and Mr. Charger will play a role as a DJ/VJ, host and Emcee when they take a bow next month.
Jim Gifford is Operations Director for Mid-West Family Broadcasting at 580 E. Napier Avenue in Benton Harbor. He says, "Rex has had a profound impact on the sound and direction of WIRX in his time here in Southwest Michigan." He adds, "The search for our next Rock Star begins immediately."
Charger is a native of the Green Bay, Wisconsin area and served several stints with the Mid-West Family team in Madison, Wisconsin, which is where he came from to join the local team two years ago.
Decisions regarding Charger's replacement will be made in the coming weeks, according to Gifford, and all inquiries should be directed his way at firstname.lastname@example.org. He asks that outside parties interested in seeking the position refrain from making phone calls, and make contact by email alone.
