Darren Gauthier

After visiting Texas many times, Louisiana native Darren Gauthier has finally crossed over the Sabine Pass into the Lone Star State as the new Operations Manager for Townsquare Media’s five stations in Central Texas. Originally from New Orleans, Darren grew up in nearby Baton Rouge and is a proud alum of LSU. Darren got his start at the campus radio station KLSU, rising to the role of station manager before being lured to work in the exciting world of New Orleans rock radio. Darren returned to Baton Rouge in 2001 rising to the top of the programming food chain while holding down a six-day airshift for a decade. One of the stations he oversaw was twice-nominated for the prestigious Marconi award - radio’s version of the Oscar® - in 2012 and again in 2015. Seeking new challenges and a change of scene, Darren Gauthier was recruited by K-101.7 and the sister stations to bring a personal touch and a renewed sense of community focus to the stations in Killeen and Temple.

The BBQ Shop Around The Corner

Sometimes it's as plain as the nose on your face.

Since coming to central Texas, I've passed numerous businesses to and from my daily obligations.  I always say to myself, "Hey, there's a place I have to try." One of these has been Chuck's barbecue restaurant.  Actually, the full name of the establishment is "Chuck's Pea Ridge Bar-B-Q and Steakhouse."  That's very helpful: it tells you exactly where the restaurant is, on the corner of W. Adams Ave. and South Pea Ridge Road.
