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.

Owensboro Man Completes Hike from Georgia to Maine [Photos]

When Trey Johnson told his mother, Lisa, he was going to embark on an epic hike across parts of our country, she didn't understand why he, why anyone would want to do that.  That was 26 and a half weeks and over 2100 miles ago.  Over the weekend, Lisa flew to Bangor, Maine to pick up her son and bring him home.  Yes, she flew all the way to Maine.  He began his quest, this half-year-long journey of self-discovery in Georgia.  And he made the trip with his best friend, his dog Mo.

McKamey Manor Presents The Chamber: A New Interactive Horror Experience [Video]

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!
