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.

Throwback Thursday: Remembering Ruby Tuesday at Towne Square Mall

I don't know about you, but there was a time that Ruby Tuesday was my absolute favorite restaurant in town.  When I was a junior and senior at Daviess County High School, my friends and I had a ritual.  Ruby Tuesday nearly every Friday night.  Beef & Bird and those amazing pumpernickel breadsticks.  It's been years since Ruby Tuesday closed up shop here in Owensboro and now the company is doing the same at nearly 100 locations nationwide.
