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.

Do You Hug Your Dog? New Study Suggests They Don’t Like It [Video]

Do you hug your dog?  I must confess.  I do it all the time.  That's the first thing I do when I get home from work every day.  They run to me . . . full speed.  I pick them up and give them a big old hug.  They give me kisses on the cheek.  That's our routine.  That's what we do.  And I just assumed we were all good with it.  But, apparently, I'm delusional.  A new article in Psychology Today suggests that 81% of dogs don't like being hugged and the act raises their anxiety levels.  In fact, that article lists a whole string of behaviors that demonstrate just how much your pooch dislikes being hugged.  So, I decided to run an experiment with my dogs to see if they think a hug is a "good touch" or a "bad touch."  Here's what happened-

The Summer of ’99: Remembering the Terror of The Railroad Killer [Video]

I remember the Summer of '99 vividly.  I was working in the News Department here at WBKR/WOMI and there was no bigger, or more terrifying news story, than that of Rafael Resendez-Ramirez, who was better known by the nickname "The Railroad Killer."  Resendez-Ramirez was among the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives and was the subject of a nationwide manhunt that weaved in and out of Texas, Illinois and Kentucky.  And rumors were swirling that he was spotted in Owensboro.
