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.

New PizzARoma Location Opens Monday in Owensboro [Photos]

My friends and I absolutely love PizzARoma.  But, I'll confess, it took us a while to love the news that they were shutting down their cozy Carter Road location (which we visit multiple times a month) and moving to Wesleyan Park Plaza in the former home of Mirko Pasta.  But, now that we've gotten a sneak peek at the new location, we can't wait for it to open.  LOOK!

Ellie the Bichon Frise: The Baby Bird Hunting Machine [Video]

The other day I looked out the patio door and saw Ellie trying to power-jump the tree in the backyard.  They say "white men can't jump" but this white dog has pogo sticks for legs.  I had no idea what she was doing until I realized she had treed an innocent and defenseless baby bird.  The bird was perched on the bark and in no immediate danger, so I decided to grab my iPhone and film Ellie's leaps and bounds.  I don't mean to brag, but this dog is really cute and oddly athletic for her size and stature.  Well, my plans to video and capture this adorable glimpse of nature nearly turned into a snuff film when the bird made an ill-advised run for it.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Blazing Wing Challenge [Video]

This looks like absolute torture.  Have you all seen this?  The Buffalo Wild Wings Blazing Wing Challenge.  I had heard about it, but hadn't witnessed it in person until I watched friends and family members of Taylor Widmer brave the challenge in his honor.  Check this out.  These kids (and adults) were struggling and sweating.

When Your 4-Year-Old Gives Herself a Haircut [Photos]

Meet Jovie Lee Brice (not named after the country singer, by the way).  Until tonight, Jovie had never had a haircut.  That is until she disappeared into the bathroom while her parents were cooking dinner and cut off all of her hair on one side.  LOL!  Her mother Stephanie was horrified and had a mental meltdown. See, she had an idea of how Jovie's first haircut would go .  . . and this certainly wasn't it.  She hardly wanted her daughter looking like she'd been attacked by Edward Scissorhands.  So, she called her hairstylist and Kevin saved the day.  And the kid's hair.  Here are the photos!
