Chad here! I am one half of the radio couple hilariously nicknamed "Changel". Yes, Angel is my work wife. LOL! And our show runs 6a-10am CST Monday through Friday. I also co-host The BKR's Dozen Countdown- The Tristate's 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, the monthly Rooster Booster Breakfast for the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce, various civic events, beauty pageants and dance/cheer competitions. Though I work in country music, my musical tastes are all over the place. My obsessions run from Eric Church to the Jonas Brothers. From Lady Gaga to Luke Combs and just about everything in between. I love sports (particularly tennis and the Olympics), reality television and traveling. When I am not working, I am likely at home (where I absolutely love to be) watching Schitt's Creek, Survivor, RuPaul's Drag Race, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (don't judge me), The Tennis Channel, ESPN and CNN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love New York City (I'm a huge theatre fan). I've visited virtually every island in the Caribbean. I've been to Greece, Italy, Croatia and am heading to Spain and France later this year. I live in Owensboro with my Kevin (my snarky and brutally honest other half for over 20 years), three rescued Bichon Frises (Dolly, Ellie and Yogi) and a rescued Cairn Terrier mix named Simon.
