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.

Ohio County High School Softball Team Honors Harlie Bryant at Annual Cancer Awareness Game

This is really neat.  Last weekend, the Ohio County High School Lady Eagles played their annual cancer awareness game.  In fact, it was the 4th straight year the squad has proudly supported "all the colors of cancer."  The guest of honor, naturally, was little Harlie Bryant, who continues to fight her well-publicized and followed battle with cancer.  She also bravely stepped to the plate during the game to take a swing of her own on the softball field.  You have to watch this!  Harlie was a champ.

Former WBKR Intern Whitney Merritt Featured in Hilarious Post-Surgery YouTube Video

This is a scream!  Former WBKR intern Whitney Merritt recently had foot reconstruction surgery at Ohio County Hospital.  Her younger sister Helen was armed with a video camera in the recovery room.  Brace yourselves!  Whitney is out of it, insanely emotional (she cries/sobs a lot) and absolutely hilarious.  In fact, you have to watch at least until she bargains with the Redeemer to let her go to the restroom. This is one of the most embarrassing videos ever and we are SO glad we got access to it.  WATCH!
