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 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 and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching America's Got Talent, 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. I live in Owensboro with Kevin, Dolly, Ellie and a cat named Oprah.

The Amazing Caribbean Coastline and Beauty of Bonaire [Video]

This is seriously where I want to retire!  When I was on my cruise last month in December we visited Bonaire, one the ABC islands off the coast of Venezuela.  The "A" is, of course, Aruba.  The "C" is Curacao.  I had visited those islands before and was glad to go back.  They are spectacular.  But nothing prepared me for the beauty of Bonaire.  This place is INCREDIBLE!

Do You Put Q-Tips in Your Ears? [Video]

I was watching the news last night and a report (granted, a weird one) came on about Q-Tips.  And that report claims that you should not, under any circumstance use a Q-Tip to clean out your ears.  That's right!  According to the package directions, you should never put a Q-Tip in your ear.  Here's why . . .

Owensboro Woman Shares Photos of January 3rd, 2000 Tornado Damage [Video]

Today marks the 17th anniversary of the F-3 tornado that tore through Owensboro, Kentucky on January 3rd, 2000.  Among the houses that were basically leveled that day was my friend Leisa's.  Leisa's home, on McIntire Crossing, was one of many ravaged and destroyed that afternoon.  And, while her house was eventually rebuilt, Leisa still carries with her the memories of that day . . . and photos that capture the absolute and undeniable and random fury of Mother Nature.  This is her story.

The 17th Anniversary of Owensboro’s 2000 F-3 Tornado [Video]

I remember January 3rd, 2000 very well.  It was a holiday here at WBKR studios and I had worked for a couple of hours early that morning.  By that afternoon, it was sunny.  Our temperatures were hovering near 80 degrees and I was ready for a big afternoon nap.  That nap was cut short.  Cut short by blaring emergency alert sirens ringing through Owensboro-Daviess County.  I jumped out of bed and headed for the station.  I knew if a storm was going to hit, that's where I needed to be.  Boy, did it hit.  And Wayne Hart, like he is always, was in his studio with the play-by-play.  Check this out!
