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.

Snakes Fall Out of Man’s Ceiling [Video]

Uh no!  It's not news that I am afraid of clowns, mustard, death, cottage cheese and Naomi Judd.  However, my absolute biggest fear on the planet is snakes.  Ugh!  Just the sight or thought of one sends shivers up my spine.  I literally cannot deal with them and go into full "soil myself" mode if I see one.  And this YouTube video freaked me out.  Did you all see this?  Some poor guy got quite a surprise when two snakes started to squirm down from his ceiling.  #LockMeInAnInstitutionNow

Where Should Chad Get Miss Celie Fixed? [Photo]

This is the backside of Miss Celie, my Chrysler 300.  As you can see, Miss Celie was recently involved in a rather unfortunate accident.  Kevin was backing it on up and ran my beloved car into the railing of a handicapped-accessible ramp.  And, clearly, the ramp won and caused Miss Celie's trunk to look like some junk. Now, I need your help.

Adam’s Army Joins Chad & Jac at Sweatin’ for St. Jude Starting Line [Video]

Earlier this year during our St. Jude Radiothon, we introduced you to St. Jude patient, Adam.  This amazing young man was the inspiration behind this year's St. Jude song, "Brave."  And that's exactly what he is.  While battling leukemia, Adam completed a half marathon, finished and graduated high school and created an army of supporters who have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for St. Jude.  And Jaclyn and I were humbled and honored that he showed up at St. Jude this morning to join us at the starting line for Sweatin' for St. Jude, our 300-mile bike ride to create awareness and raise funds for kids just like Adam.  He is the pure definition of bravery.

Products That Prevent Chaffing, Blisters and Saddle Sores for Cyclists [Video]

When Jaclyn and I first decided to tackle our 300-mile bike from St. Jude in Memphis to Owensboro, we had no idea what our behinds were in for . . . literally or figuratively.  But thanks to our friends at Legends, we are fully equipped with some products designed to protect our behinds from some of cycling's unfortunate side effects: blisters, chaffing, and saddle sores.  You won't believe what Jaclyn's tube of ointment is called.  LOL!  Here's how NOT to chap your behind.
