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.

Cat Scratch: Can Your Cat Make You Go Blind? [Video]

This may sound rather random.  But I have two confessions of love to make.  #1- I love my CNN app.  #2- I love my cat, Oprah.  But on Saturday morning, a story on my CNN app  made me look at my cat Oprah and "Hmmmmm???"  Yes, I stumbled across a story about a Toledo, Ohio woman who says that her cat licked her and then she went blind in one eye. Is this possible?  Is Cat Scratch Fever a real thing?  Holy Furballs, Batman (or Catman)!  It appears so.

New PizzARoma Location Opens Monday in Owensboro [Photos]

My friends and I absolutely love PizzARoma.  But, I'll confess, it took us a while to love the news that they were shutting down their cozy Carter Road location (which we visit multiple times a month) and moving to Wesleyan Park Plaza in the former home of Mirko Pasta.  But, now that we've gotten a sneak peek at the new location, we can't wait for it to open.  LOOK!

Ellie the Bichon Frise: The Baby Bird Hunting Machine [Video]

The other day I looked out the patio door and saw Ellie trying to power-jump the tree in the backyard.  They say "white men can't jump" but this white dog has pogo sticks for legs.  I had no idea what she was doing until I realized she had treed an innocent and defenseless baby bird.  The bird was perched on the bark and in no immediate danger, so I decided to grab my iPhone and film Ellie's leaps and bounds.  I don't mean to brag, but this dog is really cute and oddly athletic for her size and stature.  Well, my plans to video and capture this adorable glimpse of nature nearly turned into a snuff film when the bird made an ill-advised run for it.
