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.

Floyd the Flamingo: Stars Autograph Inflatable Bird at CMA Music Fest [Video]

On Day Two of the CMA Music Festival, Jaclyn and I were watching a Josh Turner set inside the HGTV Lodge.  We noticed, bobbing there in the front row, a big inflatable flamingo that had been autographed by a variety of country music stars.  Naturally, we were quite intrigued by this fine, feathered and handsome fella.  So, we decided that we just had to meet him.  And we did!  And, now, we'd like YOU to meet him too.  Ladies and Gents, meet Floyd the Flamingo!

Review: The City of Owensboro’s New Outdoor Tennis Courts at Centre Court

My friend Craig called me early Saturday morning and said, "Hey!  How quickly can you be ready?"  I said, "For what?"  He replied, "There's a net up on one of the new outdoor courts over at Centre Court (off of Bittel Road near Shifley Park) and we can be the first people to play there.  Come on!"  So, I quit cheering for Serena Williams and turned off the French Open and flew on over.  And, on Saturday morning, June 6th, Craig Fort and I christened Owensboro's brand new outdoor courts.  And here's my full review!
