Chad Petri - WHLT 22 Connecting the Pine Belt

Chad Petri

Chads from a little suburban community halfway between Baltimore and Washington DC known as Ellicott City, Maryland. After graduating college, he took his first job as the chief cook and bottle washer for a five radio station cluster in Rolla, Missouri. He's also worked in Danbury, Connecticut, Jacksonville, Florida and Sioux City, Iowa. Chad's very happy to be back where it's above 70 degrees almost year round. If you have any suggestions for different things he could do in the morning, he'd love to hear from you
