Chuck DuCoty will retire from his role as Chief Operating Officer of NRG Media after the first of the year. CEO Mary Quass says that he will continue to work with NRG on special projects in the future. DuCoty joined NRG Media as COO in October, 2005, after serving as General Manager of WKQX-FM (Q101) in Chicago since 2001. Before that, he was VP/General Manager of WISN-AM and WLTQ-FM in Milwaukee.

DuCoty said, "I have been blessed with a career in an industry I have loved and have had the opportunity to work with some amazingly talented people. It has been said if you truly love what you do for a living, you will never work a day in your life, which has certainly been true for me. At the beginning of my broadcasting journey, if I had been asked to write down what I hoped I would be able to experience and what my life would look like I would have massively shortchanged myself. I leave the industry and NRG Media with mixed emotions but after 53 years, it is time for the next chapter in my life and for enjoying time with my family and friends."

"Chuck leaves a pair of very big shoes to fill with his retirement, not just for the NRG Media team but for the industry as well. Chuck's love and dedication to the radio industry is legendary and his impact, equally impressive. Having worked with Chuck for many years I have come to admire and respect the positive impact he has had on so many over the years. He is a great partner and an even better friend. I wish him much happiness and know that we are all better for having known him! I can only hope to leave a legacy half as meaningful to this industry as he has," said Quass.

DuCoty has served on many industry boards. He has spent a number of years on the Arbitron board, later Nielsen, and the Advisory Council including two stints as Chairman. He is also a member of COLRAM, the NAB's Committee on Local Radio Audience Measurement where he has also served as Chairman.
