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 Brett Young to Ed Sheeran; Kelly Clarkson to Chris Young. Kings of Leon to King George! I love sports (particularly tennis and the Olympics), reality television and traveling. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Walking Dead, America's Got Talent, Project Runway, Alone, RuPaul's Drag Race and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico, any place I can get to on a cruise ship and New York City. I live in Owensboro with Kevin and three rescued Bichon Frises (Dolly, Ellie and Yogi).

Bob Eubanks and The Not So Newlywed Game Coming to RiverPark Center

Did you grow up watching The Newlywed Game?  I did.  And I loved it.  It was hilarious, irreverent and completely unpredictable.  And, I loved the reactions from host Bob Eubanks.  At home, we never knew what the contestants would say.  And Eubanks didn't either.  The only difference?  He had studio cameras catching his reactions, which were priceless!  Well, guess what?  We have the chance to see Bob and some Not So Newlyweds live!  The game show is coming to the RiverPark Center in downtown Owensboro.
