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.

Mystery Surrounds Major Announcement at Holiday World [Video]

The truth is out there.  Somewhere.  And just about every coaster enthusiast and amusement park buff has a theory about what Holiday World's big announcement is going to be.  Yep!  In May, the park launched a brand new website called 66 Days at Sea and that website serves as a countdown to Thursday, July 24th, when officials at Holiday World are set to make a MAJOR announcement.  But, so far, they are only giving extremely vague hints as to what that announcement may be.  But check out this video.  Two Indiana teenagers named Jordan and Alec have poured over every detail of every single clue and they think they're onto something.

Fun Rising Star App Allows You to Play Along at Home [Photos]

Okay!  I'm hooked.  I called Nashville Kat in the middle of last night's premiere of Rising Star and told her, "I'm already behaving like a crack addict."  I like the show, but I LOVE the Rising Star app.  It literally allows us to watch and vote in real time.  Yep!  We are in full control of the singers' destinies.  And the app has some other cool features too.  LOOK!

Three Guys in Stilettos Dance an Insane Beyonce Medley [Video]

Okay.  I'm not gonna lie.  Last year, I thought I pretty much killed my Beyonce "Single Ladies"  routine at the Lanham Brothers Jamboree.  But then I saw THIS.  You have to check out this awesome video from Yanis Marshall Choreography.  These three guys, decked out in stiletto-heels no less, absolutely rock it out.  This is ridiculous!!  I got some moves, but apparently I could use a few more.
