CHRIS KELLY WAS BORN IN ASHEBORO ON APRIL 11, 1971 AND HAD THE TYPICAL CHILDHOOD. MOSTLY HE JUST WAITED TO BE PICKED LAST AT SPORTS, AND THEN COMFORT HIMSELF WITH AN ENTIRE POT ROAST FOR DINNER. 

HE GOT HIS FIRST RADIO JOB AT A LITTLE STATION CALLED THE KICKIN’ CHICKEN, AND AFTER ENDURING A BRIEF STINT IN THE CHICKEN-SUIT, HE DECIDED TO ATTAIN HIS DREAM…ATTENDING UNC-CHAPEL HILL. THIS NEVER HAPPENED, BUT HE STILL PRETENDS IT DID. AFTER COLLEGE, CHRIS IMMEDIATELY WENT BACK TO WORK IN RADIO AND HAS BEEN KEEPING HIS AUDIENCE IN HYSTERICS EVER SINCE. YOU CAN COUNT ON HIM TO SAY EXACTLY WHAT EVERYONE IS THINKING, WHETHER IT’S A WISE IDEA OR NOT… AND WE LOVE HIM FOR IT!
