BIG DAVE & CHELSIE
Monday – Friday, 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Born in Jackson, Tennessee, Big Dave (who was much smaller then) and his family soon relocated to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Soon thereafter he embarked on his educational journey and went from Kindergarten through college in the ‘Boro.
Armed with a degree in Radio/Television from MTSU, Dave headed 30 miles down the road to make his radio fortune in Music City.
But Nashville proved to be a harsh town for the radio rookie. So after 8 years and various pending lawsuits from Wynonna to Pamela Anderson to the Goo Goo Cluster Corporation, his lawyer suggested that a change of scenery might do him some good.
With that in mind, Dave relocated to Cincinnati in 1998 and has been lawsuit free ever since! He has since married a beautiful Indiana girl named Carri and together they have a gorgeous daughter named Darah and a brand new baby boy named Darren.
In his spare time Dave likes to garden, exercise, play guitar and root on the Bengals and the Reds.
Born and raised in Aurora, Indiana, Chelsie has been in the radio business since 1994. Her B-105 legacy started from the ground up, beginning as an intern at the station and moving right on to being a radio personality alongside her partner-in-crime, Big Dave.
Working in country music certainly has its perks, especially when those perks involve celebrity legends like Garth Brooks. “It was amazing when Garth Brooks had a sold out five-show run here,” Chelsie says, “I went to all the shows and it was a really exciting time for everyone at the station.”
Aside from enjoying sold out concerts and mingling with celebrities, Chelsie loves sharing a laugh with the hilarious listeners who make her job so much fun.
When she’s not in the studio, Chelsie spends her free time cheering in the stands at Cincinnati Reds games and hanging out with her husband Brad and their daughter Reese and son Rory.
