Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 9 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew, I am now one half of the all-new CB Radio Show here on WBKR! Our show runs 6a-9am CST Monday through Friday and I also co-host The BKR's Dozen Countdown with Dave Spencer each Saturday morning at 8am. In addition to flapping my lips on the air, I emcee a variety of events all over the state of Kentucky. I emcee charity functions, beauty pageants and dance competitions. I love country music. In fact, I love all kids of music. I listen to everything from Justin Moore to Katy Perry to Sam Smith to David Nail to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to J Hud and Pitbull. I love tennis, running, and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Blacklist, Project Runway, The Biggest Loser, American Horror Story, and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico and any place I can get to on a cruise ship.

The 2015 Polar Bear Plunge Features an Inflatable Slide [Photo]

This year's Polar Bear Plunge is going to feature a bunch of changes.  The first change, announced a few months ago, is the big move to downtown Owensboro.  Another huge change will be the Plunge itself.  Instead of jumping into a lake or a swimming pool, this year's plungers are going to climb up a gigantic inflatable slide and barrel down it into a pool of freezing cold water.  It's going to be a blast.  An Arctic one!
