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.

It is National Secondhand Wardrobe Day and I am celebrating by confessing my love for thrift stores!  There's nothing like a finding a great bargain at a cheap, super-affordable price.  And I'm not ashamed to admit it.  I will wear secondhand clothes in a heartbeat- if the look and the price are right.  Check this out!  I was broadcasting live from Goodwill's newest Owensboro location recently and decided to show you how can look like a million bucks . . . by spending just a few dollars on some amazing secondhand finds.

Twenty-One: A Tribute to SPC Brandon Mullins of Owensboro [Video]

It was August 25th, 2011 that Brandon Mullins was killed in Afghanistan.  The 2008 Apollo High School graduate had been stationed at Fort Wainwright, Alaska, but was in the Middle East on special orders with Operation Enduring Freedom.  While serving there, his vehicle was attacked in the Kandahar province and the Owensboro, Kentucky native never made it back home.  To mark the 5th anniversary of his death, his parents, Tommy and Cathy Mullins, have teamed with Gray Sky Music to record a song for their fallen son.  It's called "Twenty One."  And as powerful as the song is, you must watch the video through to its conclusion.  It's the voice of Brandon that will ultimately give you chills and remind you that tomorrow is never promised.  This is incredible.

Juggling with Humans: One of the Funniest Things Ever on AGT [Video]

Did you all see this?  I swear.  I laughed so hard last night.  This season of America's Got Talent features a duo called The Passing Zone.  Think jugglers meet comedians meets magicians.  The guys are a scream and, last night, absolutely topped themselves.  They actually juggled humans.  And the humans were Howie, Heidi and Mel B.  Watch this.  I promise.  You are going to howl!

Virtual Tour of The Glendalia Boutique Hotel in Cincinnati [Video]

This place is an absolute find.  I was in Cincinnati last week for the Western and Southern Open and spent three nights at the Glendalia Boutique Hotel and Culinary Studio.  Situated right off I-75 in Glendale, this quaint hotel will make you forget you're in the big city.  Here's a look inside the suite I had.  It's called The Hannigan and it offered the perfect blend of antique style and modern amenities.
