Chandler Nunnally

Coast Live Host

Chandler Nunnally is a born-and-raised Hampton Roads guy. Growing up in Chesapeake, Chandler attended Indian River High School and Old Dominion University. He spent his childhood enjoying local staples like Busch Gardens, The Outer Banks, and the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Chandler is a drummer, and spent years getting to know his community through playing at local venues and public events. Music has a huge place in his life, but movies are Chandler's passion: he's been an avid filmgoer ever since he can remember. It's this love for "showbiz" that led Chandler to pursue a career in Television, which started at WTKR in 2017. Chandler joined News 3 as a Production Assistant, eventually working his way up to a Director position. His favorite show to direct was always WTKR's lifestyle show, Coast Live, which allowed him the freedom to be creative and help showcase the fun side of the Hampton Roads community. His proudest achievement was directing a show that featured a wedding, officiated live on set. This show won the Coast team a Creative Excellence award from the Virginia Association of Broadcasters in 2020.

After almost 5 years at WTKR, Chandler has done a little of everything at the station. His desire to learn about every side of the TV industry eventually led to the opportunity to host the show he had spent years directing, Coast Live. Now Chandler and his co-host April Woodard get to show the fun side of Hampton Roads every weekday at 9 a.m. Chandler is thrilled to have the chance to talk with the people of Hampton Roads every day about what makes our community so great, and to have the chance to highlight local musicians, filmmakers, and other artists who represent the diverse talent of Southeastern Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina.
