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.

National Dress Up Your Pet Day [Photos & Video]

January 14th is National Dress Up Your Pet Day!  So, naturally, Brett and I decided to do our part in making the day special for pets and pet owners everywhere.  We called up our friend Joanie at Halloween Havoc and picked out some runway-ready outfits for our dogs and cats. (Okay.  We know this sounds insane, but work with us.)  Brett's cat, Bronson, worked the camera like a champ.  Like James Bond. Like Daniel Craig with a furball and a catnip addiction.   My dogs, Wilma, Dolly and Ellie, worked it like they were trying to make the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition or, better yet, the centerfold in a Larry Flynt magazine.  LOL!  Check out the photo spread and the bonus video which features my dogs absolutely destroying Wilma's lime green tutu.

Kentucky Wesleyan Singer Nadia Wilkes Featured in WBKR’s Denim & Diamonds Concert [Video]

Denim & Diamonds, our annual concert fundraiser for St. Jude, is coming up Friday, January 30th at Theatre Workshop's Empress Theatre in downtown Owensboro.  And I am personally thrilled this young lady is joining us.  Oddly enough, I first heard Nadia Wilkes singing at the KWC tennis courts.  Lol!  Not lying.  My friend Craig and I were playing tennis and, all of a sudden, we heard this voice just booming from across the parking lot.  Turns out, it was Nadia and she was ripping the song "I Am Changing (from Dreamgirls) a new one.  I literally chased her across part of KWC's campus and invited her to be a part of this year's show.  Here's a sneak preview of what you can except.  This girl can sing her face off.
