It’s sad to report the passing of former KNCO Sports reporter and account executive, Chuck Vintere, who lost his battle with prostate cancer. I replaced Chuck in the sports position here at KNCO when he opened up a sports collectible shop in downtown Grass Valley. He was part of that KNCO family that did whatever was needed to get the job done including reporting on the 49er Fire. Chuck was always thoughtful and courteous and he loved Nevada County. All the best to his family and friends.
AdministratorTom Fitzsimmons is the Program Director for Nevada County Broadcasters, and morning show host at KNCO NewsTalk 830, but his favorite job is being husband to Roxanne and Dad to his daughter's Katie and Kelly, and step dad to Tyson and Megan. Tom and Roxanne just became grandparents with the birth of Megan's daughter, Hazel Virginia. Tom also is the voice of High School Football and Basketball play by play. His hobbies include playing and watching all sports and taking long hikes both locally and in the Sierras with his dog, Angel. He also has taken up distance running and just started to get into road cycling.
