Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 11 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew and The CB Radio Show, I am now one half of the all-new Morning Drive on 92.5 with Chad & Angel. Our show runs 6a-10am 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 and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching America's Got Talent, 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. I live in Owensboro with Kevin, Dolly, Ellie and a cat named Oprah.

Remembering the Sparkle and Life of Emma Joy Ford [Video]

Today, as we raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, we are paying tribute to a young lady who changed the lives of everyone she encountered during her brief stay here on Earth.  In the words of her mom Amy, Emma Joy Ford "brought so much joy to everyone she knew."  And it's this joy for life that Emma inspired that brought Team Emma to the WBKR St. Jude family.  Team Emma has dedicated themselves to carrying on Emma's legacy by vowing to raise money for the fight against cancer and do it, tirelessly, in her honor.  For those of you who not having the chance to meet Emma, here's your chance.  Emma loved to dance.  She loved pink and sparkles.  And life.

Expedia Brings The World to St. Jude Patients [Video]

The WBKR Window World St. Jude Radiothon continues and we are spending the next two days sharing amazing stories of inspiration and hope from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.  I am always amazed, blown away, by the lengths St. Jude goes to in order to normalize the lives of children whose lives aren't normal at all.  And, in January, at our annual Country Cares conference, we were shown this video.  This amazing video that explains St. Jude's partnership with Expedia.  It's a partnership that brings world travel to children who are sometimes too sick to even go outside. This video simply brought me to tears.  It's beautiful.

WBKR Tribute to St. Jude Patient Chance: She Heard His Voice Today [Video]

Can you imagine losing a child and completely forgetting what he or she sounds like?  That happened to Jennifer and Jeff Tetrick after they lost their son to cancer.  As our 2017 St. Jude Radiothon continues, we're taking time to remember 11-year-old Chance Tetrick.  On, Feb 21, 2013, Chance was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. After his passing on August 4, 2014, his mother was afraid she was losing her memory of him and couldn't remember the sound of his voice, until she heard him on a St. Jude Radiothon . . . much like the radiothon we're having now on WBKR.  Chance's story always reminds us of the power of radio, the power of St. Jude and the power of community.  And we're honored to share his story (and our song inspired by him) with you.

Undefeated: WBKR Tribute to St. Jude Patient Markell [Video]

Markell's story is one the most tragic, yet inspiring ones you will ever hear.  Markell was a St. Jude patient who battled cancer six different times and he did so behind the strength of people cheering him at curve in the road and step of the way.  Jaclyn and I had the honor of meeting Markell, talking with him, getting to know him and being inspired by him.  And our hearts absolutely broke in two last year when Markell's body, so broken down by this journey, finally surrendered.  But to this day, we are Team Markell.  All day.  Every day.  And here's our tribute to a young man who absolutely changed lives while losing his own.

Remembering Lane Goodwin: WBKR’s Thumbs Up Tribute [Video]

Here at WBKR, we are spending the next two days trying to strike out childhood cancer.  And every time we have our St. Jude Radiothon, we are always reminded of and inspired by Lane Goodwin, the young McLean County, Kentucky boy who, for many folks in the tristate, became THE face of childhood cancer.  We all remember putting our "Thumbs Up" and joining Lane in his fight against the monster.  Today, that fight continues here at WBKR.  And we're honoring Lane and asking you to put YOUR thumbs up.  We have work to do so that "no child should die in the dawn of life."
