Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 11 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew and The CB Radio Show, I am now one half of the all-new Morning Drive on 92.5 with Chad & Angel. Our show runs 6a-10am 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 Brett Young to Ed Sheeran; Kelly Clarkson to Chris Young. Kings of Leon to King George! I love sports (particularly tennis and the Olympics), reality television and traveling. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Walking Dead, America's Got Talent, Project Runway, Alone, RuPaul's Drag Race and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico, any place I can get to on a cruise ship and New York City. I live in Owensboro with Kevin and three rescued Bichon Frises (Dolly, Ellie and Yogi).

Check out Holiday World's latest podcast.  I was invited to join in the fun for Episode 32: The One with the Hanging Chad!  LOL!  We chatted about my first trip to the park . . . way back in the day when Holiday World was known as Santa Claus Land.  We also chatted about the Firecracker!  Yes.  Holiday World has a brand new ride called Firecracker.  But a lot of you will remember this.  The park's very first roller coaster was also called Firecracker.  And we had the chance to reminisce about that ride and chat about how far the park's coasters have come since.  Holiday World and I go way back!
