After Chuck Cantrell received his undergraduate degree in broadcast journalism from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and went on to receive the Master of Public Administration degree from UTC.

For more than 25 years, Chuck has been the goodwill ambassador for the institution he loves. As Associate Vice Chancellor for Communication and Marketing, Chuck oversees the Office of Communications and Marketing and WUTC FM 88.1, the campus’s public radio affiliate. In addition to serving as UTC’s primary spokesperson, he manages the campus’s operations in media relations, publications, marketing, advertising, web development, social media, and video production.

When he’s not hanging out with his wife—a faculty member in the UTC School of Education—and son, Chuck is probably reading, watching or playing something related to Star Wars! May the Force be with you, especially when choosing lottery numbers.
