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.

Day Trip Destination: Bonnie & Clyde’s Pizza in Louisville

The first time I ate at Bonnie and Clyde's Pizza in Louisville was way back in the mid 1980's.  I was on a day trip with my aunt Roxie and uncle Bill and we stopped there for some lunch.  And I remember loving it.  I loved it so much it stayed in my memory until this year, when I finally got to return . . . after nearly 30 years.  And, you know what?  Bonnie and Clyde's is STILL awesome and totally worth a day trip of your own.
