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.

One & Done: The Night-Blooming Cactus Blooms & Wilts [Video]

Have you all ever seen one of these?  It's a night-blooming cereus.  Yeah, don't feel bad.  I had no idea what the heck that was either until Kevin decided that he would order one and plant it.  That was two years ago.  I repeat, TWO YEARS AGO!  Well, guess what?  After 24 months of gestation and carrying this thing to term, the cactus actually gave birth to a bloom.  And, I will confess, it was kinda cool.  I shot some video!

Homeward Angels: A Powerful 9/11 Tribute [Video]

It's hard to believe, but the tragedy of September 11th was fifteen years ago today.  In a way, it seems like a lifetime ago.  In other ways, it seems like yesterday. Check out this powerful 9/11 tribute.  It's called Homeward Angels and it does two important things: it reminds us of the horror of September 11th, 2001 and, even more importantly, it gives us the promise of a new day, rebirth and rebuilding.  This is tremendous and will absolutely give you chills.

Guilty Grocery Pleasures: How to Make Chef Boyardee Pizza [Video]

I think everyone has one.  A guilty pleasure from the grocery store.  You know!  One of those products you're not supposed to like, but one that you just can't help craving.  Mine is, without a doubt, Chef Boyardee Pizza!  Honestly, I eyeball the boxes every time I go to the grocery.  Though I do a great job of resisting the temptation, it's one I fight weekly. I feel like I need to be on Intervention.  In case you've never experiences the "easy family fun" of the Chef Boyardee Pizza Maker, here's how to make the deep dish version of this forbidden Italian fruit.  LOL!
