Atlanta Anchor Chuck Moore Dies

By Kevin Eck 

Chuck Moore, who anchored at both WXIA and WAGA in Atlanta, has died.

From 1972 until 1979, Moore anchored at WAGA when it was a CBS affiliate. He moved to NBC affiliate WXIA in 1980 and worked there until 1997.

“Chuck had a big impact on my career. Growing up in Atlanta, I had a career day project when I was in 6th grade,” WXIA chief meteorologist Chris Holcomb wrote in a Facebook post. “I interviewed Chuck Moore on the phone for that career day project! I not only made an “A” on the project, I was honored to work with him at 11Alive from 1991-1997. On my first day at work, I went up to him and told him I interviewed him in 6th grade. He told me I made him feel old!”

Moore went back to TV news for several years at former North Georgia CBS station WNEG (now WGTA).

He was 73.
