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 Brett Young to Ed Sheeran; Kelly Clarkson to Chris Young. Kings of Leon to King George! I love sports (particularly tennis and the Olympics), reality television and traveling. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Walking Dead, America's Got Talent, Project Runway, Alone, RuPaul's Drag Race and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico, any place I can get to on a cruise ship and New York City. I live in Owensboro with Kevin and three rescued Bichon Frises (Dolly, Ellie and Yogi).

This Video Will Make You Afraid of Spiders if You’re Not Already [Video]

I am normally not afraid of spiders.  I was once briefly as a child when I was running through a cornfield and nearly smacked face-first into one of those gigantic writing spiders.  I am pretty sure it wrote "You're about to die, Chad!" in its web.  But usually, I am cool with them.  I have even been known to pick spiders up and take them outside after finding them in my house.  I don't like to kill things and I figure that spiders have a better chance of living productive lives and finding flies to eat if they're outside instead of inside in my living room.  So, I do my best to help save the population.  Now, all that said, I think THIS would absolutely freak me the heck out!  I saw this video of a massive spider web in New Zealand and was quickly reminded of that movie Eight-Legged Freaks.  This looks horrifying.
