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.

Deputy Bennett and His Microwave “Unsafe” Bowl [Photos]

I need to remind myself to never get arrested.  I have a feeling that Deputy Raygen Bennett, with the Daviess County Detention Center, is probably going to remember this for a long time.  But you are never going to guess what happened to him yesterday at work.  Thanks to my good friend Joni Barnett (yes, I am throwing my alibi under the bus), I happened across the story of what happened when Deputy Bennett tried to use a microwave "unsafe" bowl.  It didn't go well . . . at all!  LOOK!

Throwback Thursday: The Final Ten Minutes of 2014′s Sweatin’ For St. Jude [Video]

I am not going to lie.  When I watched this video to prepare this story, I actually cried.  I had forgotten how brutal this was.  In our first ever Sweatin' for St. Jude event, Jaclyn knocked down an astounding 32.4 miles.  I logged 50 miles . . . in one day on a treadmill inside the Owensboro Family YMCA.  As we get ready to the same thing again on Monday, the 23rd, we've decided to take a look back at last year's big finale.  And, yes.  There was blood, lots of sweat and lots of tears.

The World’s Most Expensive Trailer [Video]

Sammy Kershaw may have know the Queen of the Double-Wide Trailers, but this bad boy is the King of the Single-Wides!  You are not going to believe this.  Way back in 1956, a man purchased a third of an acre of land in the Hamptons for just $300.  Today that land, which is home to his mobile home, is on the market for one million dollars.  Here's the story from Buzz:60.  This is GREAT!

Grayson County Man Sells Bread, Milk and Eggs on Facebook

This is hilarious!  In fact, I think Doug Lindsey needs to be on the next edition of NBC's The Apprentice.  This is a guy who's got his thinking cap on and knows how to make the most of a snow situation.  He knows that when a winter storm approaches people flock to the grocery stores for three things: milk, bread and eggs.  And he knows those shelves get wiped out quickly.  So, he stocked up and decided to make some money.   Look what he posted on For Sale in Owensboro, KY!

Join Chad and Jaclyn for Sweatin’ For St. Jude [Video]

Yep!  We're doing it again.  Last year, Jaclyn and I, to kick off our St. Jude fundraising season, spent 12 hours on side-by-side treadmills at the Owensboro Family YMCA!  And, one week from today, we are going to do it again.  Only this time, YOU can be part of the fun.  Don't worry.  You don't have to run 25 miles like Jaclyn's going to do.  And you certainly don't have to knock down a 50-miler like I will.  LOL!  But here's how you can hop on a treadmill and help us raise money.
