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.

The Heath Bar and Marshmallow Blizzard from Dairy Queen [Video]

Miracle Treat Day is coming up TODAY at Dairy Queen!  And we are celebrating with this tasty blast from the past!  Last year, I was broadcasting live during Miracle Treat Day at the Dairy Queen on New Hartford Road in Owensboro, where we served up over 200 Blizzards in two hours!  It was CRAZY, but we managed to raise a good chunk of money for the Children's Miracle Network.  While I was there, I took some time to introduce the Dairy Queen staff to my favorite Blizzard flavor and combination.  And I talked a couple of the gals into showing you how it's made.  Ladies and Gents, I proudly present (in case you missed it in 2013) The Heath Bar and Marshmallow Blizzard from Dairy Queen!

Venus Willilams Gets Locked Out of Practice [Video]

Anytime I take a trip I happen to end up at the right place at the wrong time.  Or, depending on how you look at it, the wrong place at the right time.  Same thing happened on Monday in Cincinnati.  I was court hopping at the Western and Southern Open and happened across Venus Williams' practice court.  She was set to hit for an hour on Court 12 and fans were lined up to watch.  Except, there was a small catch.  Venus, who was understandably trying to avoid the crowd, got locked out of the back entrance of the court was forced to take a different route . . . right through the middle of her screaming fans!

Thank a Farmer: WBKR presents Reid’s Orchard [Video]

Yesterday, I spent about three hours at Owensboro Health's Harvest Market event, which is held every Tuesday in the hospital parking lot.  The general idea is to promote good health and wellness on the outside of the hospital as well as inside.  A staple of Harvest Market is the Owensboro Regional Farmers' Market, which was well-represented this week by about a dozen area growers and producers.  One of them, my friend Katie Clark!  That name may not ring a bell but her maiden name surely will.  It's Reid!
