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.

Skylar Cain Performs Say Something with Guitar [Video]

We keep saying that Skylar Cain (from Owensboro) is destined for something big.  And last Friday evening at Relay for Life Daviess County, she proved once more that her talents are endless.  Check this out.  Immediately following the evening's Luminary Ceremony, Skylar belted out the pop hit "Say Something."  And she did it while playing the guitar.  And, get this.  She only learned the song six days before this performance.  Unbelievable.  WATCH!

Chad & Brett Raid the Bouncy House at Relay For Life [Video]

Boys will be boys.  And adult men will be children.  At Relay for Life on Friday, there was a gigantic Sesame Street-themed bouncy house.  And you know there is NO way I was going to resist that.  So, I convinced Brett into joining me and Jaclyn grabbed the video camera.  Little did we know she was going to capture video of Brett taking out a kid on the giant inflatable slide.  This is hilarious!

How to Protect Your iPhone with a Free App [Video]

I have always wondered why we have so many anti-viral programs for our computers, but we don't seem to have to have them for our phones, which essentially do the same things as our computers these days.  Well, as it turns out, we actually SHOULD protect our phones too.  Recently, Computer Dave visited The WBKR Waking Crew to explain and tell us about a FREE app that will do the the trick.  WATCH!
