Chad here! Catch my show- with the fabulously fun Mary-Katherine Maddox- from 6a-10am CST Monday through Friday on WBKR. In addition to flapping my lips on the air, I emcee a variety of events all over the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I emcee charity functions, concerts, the monthly Rooster Booster Breakfast for the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce, various civic events, beauty pageants and a variety of dance/cheer competitions. Though I work primarily in country radio, my musical tastes are all over the place. My obsessions run from Eric Church to the Jonas Brothers to Orville Peck to Kelly Clarkson (the goddess) to Luke Combs, Beyonce and more. And, I FREAKING LOVE THE 80s. I am STILL obsessed with Prince, Pat Benatar, Taylor Dayne, Michael and Janet, Madonna, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Human League, and more. I love traveling the worlds, going to amusement parks, playing tennis, riding my bike, cooking and watching suspenseful TV shows full of twists and surprises. I live in Owensboro with Kevin (my snarky and brutally honest other half for over 20 years), two rescued Bichon Frises (Ellie and Yogi) and a rescued Cairn Terrier mix named Simon.
