Chadwick Benefield

Word to yo mama! Thanks for reading my bio. I have hand-crafted it with love and tenderness to give you a sneak peak inside my soul. I am entering my 16th year working at WBKR and just can't believe how quickly the years have flown by. If you listen to The WBKR Waking Crew, thanks! If you don't . . . thanks. LOL! Though I work here at The Country Station, I love all kinds of music and my iPod is loaded up with everything from Thomas Rhett to Katy Perry to Emeli Sande to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to Fall Out Boy to Matchbox Twenty to that little wrecking ball Miley Cyrus. I am an avid tennis fan (I've played my whole life and it is my absolute favorite sport) and I run every single day. In fact, that's how I dropped 30 pounds in 18 months. And I love watching television to wind down. My favorite shows are all over the place just like my tastes in music. I love The Blacklist, The X Factor, Sleepy Hollow, The Biggest Loser, Dexter (though he's done), Project Runway, RuPaul's Drag Race, The Long Island Medium, Storm Chasers, American Horror Story, The Amazing Race 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.

The Owensboro High School Best in Show Pageant [Video]

You better work!  Yesterday, I had the pleasure of emceeing the 2014 Best in Show Pageant at Owensboro High School.   It's an annual event sponsored by PSTO that allows high school boys to "drag" it up for a chance to win money for various clubs, organizations and sports teams around the school.  Just before the "lovely ladies" took to the catwalk, we shot some video backstage to let you meet each of the contestants.  This is a scream!
