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 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 endless charity functions, beauty pageants and dance competitions. Though I work in country music, my musical tastes are all over the place. Seriously! I have thousands of CD's and they range from Garth Brooks box sets to The Brady Bunch's Greatest Hits. Not even kidding. 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 New York City (I'm a huge theatre fan). I absolutely crave Mexico when I am not there. And I love pretty much place you can get to on a cruise ship. I live in Owensboro with my Kevin (my snarky and brutally honest other half), three rescued Bichon Frises (Dolly, Ellie and Yogi) and a rescued Cairn Terrier mix named Simon.
