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.

UPDATE: WBKR T-Shirt at Goodwill Finds New Home [Photos]

I'm very pleased to report that we have breaking news this morning here at WBKR.com.  Yesterday, I shared a story about and some photos of one of our "Ugly Christmas Sweater" t-shirts.  It ended up on the rack, for sale, at Goodwill!  I basically threw a hilarious, yet powerful online tantrum about our shirt ending up in the donation dumpster behind Goodwill, where it eventually made it to the rack priced to move at $1.50.  Well, the fine folks at Goodwill decided to move it off the rack and into the front display window where it truly belonged.  And, it worked!!  That lonely, down and out, WBKR shirt has a brand new and very proud owner.

A Piece of WBKR History Found at Goodwill [Photo]

Okay.  "History" is a strong word.  But I was at Goodwill Wednesday evening shopping for an outfit for Zombie Zumba.  I was raiding the racks trying to find the perfect t-shirt to bloody up and to look "dead" in.  That's when I found a little piece of WBKR fashion at a drastically discounted price.

What if Country Music Stars Were Cast as Harry Potter Characters? [Photos]

Last week, Dave Spencer, Jaclyn and I were commenting about how Jake Owen has begun to look a little bit like Severus Snape from the Harry Potter movies.  And that got me thinking. What would the Harry Potter movies have been like if country music stars had been cast in some of the lead roles?  I think I've come up with a pretty good idea.  Look!
