Charlie Thomas

Weekdays 6a - 10a

Charlie's been on The Eagle since the summer of '99 but he's been a key player in Sacramento radio since 1984. Sample "Music In The Morning with Charlie Thomas", 6:00am-10:00am weekdays, effective January 20th, 2014.

Name: Charlie Thomas
Hometown: Memphis, TN. "The birthplace of Rock n Roll" ..a town very similar to Sactown in many ways..and yet worlds apart.
Arrived: Sacramentan since 1984...after 3 years in Chico in small market radio, and 3 years in L.A. hanging at Manhattan Beach...but never learned to surf.
Band/Artists: Pink Floyd, U2 and Zeppelin are my favorite bands, but I also rank Peter Gabriel near the top because of the way he's integrated world rhythms and other exotic flavors into his songs.
Alma Mater: Princeton University, in my "ivory tower" years...yeah, I knew John Nash (of "Beautiful Mind" fame) and I came to realize that in radio, schizophrenia is actually an occupational advantage.
Vacation destinations: Man, there are so many to enjoy right in our own back yard! Skiing at lake Tahoe, wine tasting in Amador county, golfing in the foothills, rafting the south fork, taking a walk around Folsom lake..why go anywhere else??

Doug Thomas


The radio bug started in Junior High. My friend Steve and I combined our stereo equipment in his living room and created our own after school radio station. We were “cutting edge” with our turntables and reel-to-reel machines. The speakers were ENORMOUS! (BB=before Bose). Born in Sacramento, I’ve always had a passion for music. As a former drummer, I couldn’t be happier with my chosen profession. I love working in radio. After starting my career in San Diego, I spent a few years in Reno before settling back into Sacramento in early 2004. The family includes my beautiful wife Crystal and Woody, the terrier. Crystal and I got engaged, on-stage, in front of 10,000 people at a Chris Botti concert in San Diego! My parents live a few miles away in Antelope. Crystal’s mom is in Reno. And my father-in-law, Jack Jones of “Love Boat” fame, lives in Palm Desert. I’m a sports nut. I love following the Kings and the Rivercats and I’m a total golf junkie.
