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.

Hawesville Girls Raise $500 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

I always have a difficult time when I sit down to write a story like this.  It's hard to see the computer screen and the keys of the keyboard through the tears.  There's absolutely nothing more heartwarming than kids helping kids.  And, well, these kids have done it again.  Last year, Ava and Addy Riggs wanted to raise money for the children of St. Jude.  And they did.  This year, they decided to do it again and, thanks to a big old birthday party at the movies in Tell City, the kiddos raised an astounding amount money with the help of their friends.
