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.

Chad & Jaclyn Steal a Motorcycle at Brother’s Bar-B-Que [Video]

Well, not really.  We didn't officially "steal" it.  We basically just hijacked it for a few minutes.  Last week, when Jaclyn (or "Hijaclyn")  and I were at Brother's Bar-B-Q in Madisonville, we met a nice couple who had ridden in on their Spyder to get some food.  I essentially invited myself to take a ride and they said "Go for it!"  They threw me the keys, gave me a quick lesson in shifting and brakes and off I went.  Then, Jaclyn climbed on the back and we let the cameras roll!

Can Dogs Get Tonsillitis? [Video]

I spent Saturday morning taking Ellie, my newest Bichon Frise rescue, to Kentuckiana Animal Clinic.  When I got home from work Friday evening, I noticed that she seemed to be having hiccups. She was clearing her throat repeatedly and it drove her crazy pretty much all night long.  She was miserable.  So, Saturday morning, we went to the vet and you'll never believe what I found out.
