You watch him on Fox 29 News, but did you know all these fun facts on Charlie Keegan?
What was your first job?
Working with my dad. He's a mechanic who runs his own auto repair shop. I'd spend summers and breaks from school turning a wrench with the old man.
If you weren't working in news, what would you be doing?
Probably helping out at dad's garage. I could never have a job where I'm sitting in an office all day. I need to keep my hands busy.
What's your favorite part about living in South Florida?
Gotta go with the beach. I love being so close to the ocean. The water is crystal clear, and it's warm enough all year long.
What do you miss most about home?
The food, especially good old KC BBQ. We're a Gates family, if you know your KC bar-b-que landmarks.
What's your favorite Fox 29 show?
"The Simpsons" is a classic. I also like "New Girl".
