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.

This is pretty cool.  You guys are familiar with our radio jingles.  In fact, we catch you all singing along with them from time to time and we love it.  "We wanna be your Country Station, WBKR!"  Well, we just got in a new batch of jingles and are pumped that Max T. Barnes, a songwriter with nine country #1's is playing guitar on them.  Here's a quick look at the studio session where he laid down the tracks.  And, this will give you an idea of what creating a radio jingle looks like.  It's awesome!

The Great Snake on the Greenbelt Prank: Part Two [Video]

He falls for it EVERY time.  My friend Jordan is more afraid of snakes than I am.  And, last year, while we were running on the Greenbelt, I decided to yell "SNAKE!!!" and watch have a complete mental meltdown.  It worked and was hilarious.  Last week, Jordan was in town and I got another chance to wreck his world.  Yep.  We were running and I yelled "SNAKE" again.  Watch what happened.

WBKR Sales Executive Rescues a Hummingbird with CPR [Photos]

This is pretty incredible.  WBKR sales associate Bill Eidson was sitting on a patio bench at his home Saturday afternoon when he heard something hit a window in his house.  He quickly realized that a hummingbird had flown into the window and knocked itself unconscious.  In fact, the little guy fell right there on the patio.  So, Bill (channeling a little Dr. Doolittle) went to work and tried to revive the hummingbird.  And, you know what?  It worked!  Here's how he did it!
