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 Brett Young to Ed Sheeran; Kelly Clarkson to Chris Young. Kings of Leon to King George! I love sports (particularly tennis and the Olympics), reality television and traveling. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Walking Dead, America's Got Talent, Project Runway, Alone, RuPaul's Drag Race and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico, any place I can get to on a cruise ship and New York City. I live in Owensboro with Kevin and three rescued Bichon Frises (Dolly, Ellie and Yogi).

TripAdvisor’s Top Ten Things To Do in Owensboro, Kentucky [Update]

Last June, I check out Owensboro on TripAdvisor.  I was curious to see what visitors think about Owensboro.  I mean, I live here so I know what I like to do and what I think the highlights are.  But what is Owensboro like from the outside looking in?  I quickly discovered that a few things on the list were no-brainers.  However, a couple of attractions in the Top Ten surprised me last year.  So, I decided to check it out again and get an updated list.  And here are the new TripAdvisor rankings!
