Chuck Darrow


Chuck Darrow is a veteran, award-winning entertainment writer/columnist who has specialized in the gaming industry for decades. His experience covering Atlantic City’s casino scene is unsurpassed: He was on assignment (for his college newspaper) when New Jersey’s voters legalized casinos in the seaside resort in November, 1976. He was the first (and only) full-time casino-beat writer at the Philadelphia Daily News, and prior to that, for some 15 years, his weekly Atlantic City casino column had a syndicated circulation of almost one million.In 2014, he appeared multiple times on the Al Jazeera news network to provide expert analysis of Atlantic City’s then-in-crisis gambling industry. His knowledge of—and passion for—the town’s gaming scene has earned him the nickname “Boardwalk Charlie.”When he’s not writing about casinos, Chuck plays bass in Pure Petty, a popular Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers tribute band
