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.

Moonlite Bar-B-Q Hosting Taylor Swift Video Shoot Sunday

A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you to self-proclaimed Swiftie, Hannah Hawkins.  She's the Moonlite Bar-B-Q employee who is trying to get Taylor Swift to visit Owensboro for some world famous barbecue.  Hannah has already set up an online petition which has landed her on radio and television.  And, we fully believe, that petition has snagged the attention of Scott Borchetta, who owns Taylor's record label, and Taylor Swift herself.  Well, now, this Sunday, Hannah is calling on you to help with the next step.  She's filming a video parody of Taylor's hit single "Shake it Off" and she wants YOU to be in it!
