Chris Coleman is the afternoon guy on WPUR Cat Country 107.3 and Brand Manager of WPG Talk Radio 95.5 FM/1450 AM in Atlantic City, NJ. He was born in South Philadelphia and raised in South Jersey, Collings Lakes and Williamstown to be exact. With the exception of 8 months that he spent in Virginia in 2007 (technically, he never got rid of his NJ license plates so he never really left), he's spent his entire life in South Jersey and the past 25+ years at WPUR and WPG. Hobbies? A little bit of everything... storm chasing/being a weather nerd, he's a micro-investor in a race horse and he enjoys going to horse tracks, road trips or day trips (he's a bit obsessed with his car), drive-in movie theaters, photography, art, and more. On a nice evening, you'll likely bump into him on the Ocean City Boardwalk -- unless he's adulting, then he'll be at Acme or Target.
