Chad here! I am one half of the radio couple hilariously nicknamed "Changel". Yes, Angel is my work wife and I routinely want a divorce. We need couples counseling immediately. Catch our show 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. From Shawn Mendes to Luke Combs to Broadway and just about everything in between. And, I still FREAKING LOVE THE 80s. I am STILL obsessed with Prince, Pat Benatar, Madonna, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Human League, Berlin and more. I love traveling, 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.
