Ty Bentli was named co-host of America’s Morning Show in August, 2016. Bentli is joined by co-hosts Kelly Ford and Chuck Wicks every weekday on the NASH Country brand’s engaging, high-energy morning show. In addition to his morning show duties, Bentli and his entertainment radio partner Kerri Kasem report from high-profile Westwood One Backstage red carpet events, including the GRAMMYS, the American Music Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, the Hollywood Film Awards, People Magazine Awards, and other events. His friendship and rapport with celebrities and industry professionals have created many memorable moments on air, online, and backstage.
When he’s not hosting on radio or television, Bentli can be found serving as presenter and host for the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Telethon, or volunteering as a mentor at South Central Youth Center “A Place Called Home.”
He lives in Nashville with his wife and son.
The little brother you never wanted. That’s Chuck. A former Dancing with the Stars contestant and “Stealing Cinderella” singer, Chuck is the eternal 12-year-old. When he’s not taking a selfie (or Chuckie as we call it), you’ll find him tweeting about himself, looking in the mirror or loving on his Cavalier King Charles pups Cooper and Duke. Growing up on a Delaware potato farm, he’s no stranger to hard work, he just doesn’t like it. Chuck also has new music out soon, so don’t miss it!
Kelly claims Bourbon is her spirit animal. She grew up in Kentucky and comes to America’s Morning Show via New York where she was the first live voice ever heard on NASHFM 94-7, the first NASH station in the USA.
Prior to New York City, Kelly woke up country listeners in Denver for 20 years. Along her country radio journey, she has won 3 CMA’s, an ACM, a Marconi and most recently a Gracie Award. Kelly is married to Scott who she calls her trophy husband.
Two young men, one teenage girl, two doggies, 3 kitties and 5 chickens, including Hennifer Nettles and Reba Cluckentire, call her Mom.
Mindy was born and raised in the Midwest, but made East Idaho her home when she was in her mid 20’s. She began her radio career in college, loved it then, and still loves it now. Her and her husband, Greg, have 4 children, 2 dogs and a cat. She enjoys the great outdoors, and takes advantage of the beautiful country we live in camping and trail riding. Mindy also enjoys a good book every now and then, baking, home improvement projects, and spending as much time with her family as possible. She also admits that she has happily accepted her OCD – obsessive chocolate disorder.
I’m a family man first and foremost. My whole world is my little family. I’m married to the love of my life and have 2 little girls and a boy! I’ve spent the last 13 years working in Country Radio and love the music, but I will admit that I am a country convert. I moved back to my home town of Rigby after working in Salt Lake for 10 years… I consider myself very lucky to be able to do the job that I love in the place that I call home. I’m a graduate of BYU-Idaho and served a LDS mission in Zurich Switzerland… I was once giving the award of a man of 1000 voices, but most of the time all I really get is my wife to roll her eyes. Still, I want to do what I can to make people smile, and I try to do that every afternoon on River Country.
