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.

Jason Koger’s Amazing Story: In His Own Words

The photo you are looking at it probably just looks like a field to you.  But to Jason Koger it is much, much more.  It's a field that harvests amazing memories from childhood and tragic memories from adulthood.  Here at WBKR, we absolutely love Jason Koger.  He is walking proof that tragedy doesn't have to make you a victim.  No.  He's proof that, if you put your mind and, more importantly, your soul into it, you can pick yourself up from anything, dust yourself off and live better today than you did the day before.  On Sunday morning, Jason posted the photo above on Facebook and shared some amazing words of reflection and wisdom.  I suggest that you take a few minutes and read this.  Jason's words are as powerful as his story and that story will move and inspire you.
