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.

The Barb Crashes After the Eric Church Concert [Photos]

One second she was talking a mile a minute about how awesome Eric Church was in concert and how hot she thinks he is.  The next second she literally crashed and burned!  That's precisely the effect a 4-hour concert, 4 extra large draft beers and a dark Audubon Parkway have on WBKR's Barb Birgy.  Seriously, on the way home from The Ford Center Saturday night, we truly lost The Barb!  And we have the photos, in chronological order, to prove it.
