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.

And she's taken to Facebook to ensure people she's on the case.  Here's what she's saying . . .

The Big Wheel Evolves into the Motorized Drifting Trike [Video]

 

Remember Big Wheels, those plastic tricycles we used to decal the crap out of and pedal around as kids?  Well, guess what?  Now we have them for adults! But they're motorized, bigger and, yes, badder!   And I had the chance to ride a drifting trike over the weekend at Diamond Lake.  My buddy Brian Smith had one built and we took that puppy out on one of his go-cart tracks at the campground.  And it was flipping awesome.  SO MUCH FUN!
