Chad here! After 11 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew and The CB Radio Show, I am now one half of the all-new Morning Drive on 92.5 with Chad & Angel. Our show runs 6a-10am CST Monday through Friday and I also co-host The BKR's Dozen Countdown with Dave Spencer each Saturday morning at 8am. In addition to flapping my lips on the air, I emcee a variety of events all over the state of Kentucky. I emcee charity functions, beauty pageants and dance competitions. I love country music. In fact, I love all kids of music. I listen to everything from Brett Young to Ed Sheeran; Kelly Clarkson to Chris Young. Kings of Leon to King George! I love sports (particularly tennis and the Olympics), reality television and traveling. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Walking Dead, America's Got Talent, Project Runway, Alone, RuPaul's Drag Race and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico, any place I can get to on a cruise ship and New York City. I live in Owensboro with Kevin and three rescued Bichon Frises (Dolly, Ellie and Yogi).
