Chadwick Benefield

Word to yo mama! Thanks for reading my bio. I have hand-crafted it with love and tenderness to give you a sneak peak inside my soul. I am entering my 16th year working at WBKR and just can't believe how quickly the years have flown by. If you listen to The WBKR Waking Crew, thanks! If you don't . . . thanks. LOL! Though I work here at The Country Station, I love all kinds of music and my iPod is loaded up with everything from Thomas Rhett to Katy Perry to Emeli Sande to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to Fall Out Boy to Matchbox Twenty to that little wrecking ball Miley Cyrus. I am an avid tennis fan (I've played my whole life and it is my absolute favorite sport) and I run every single day. In fact, that's how I dropped 30 pounds in 18 months. And I love watching television to wind down. My favorite shows are all over the place just like my tastes in music. I love The Blacklist, The X Factor, Sleepy Hollow, The Biggest Loser, Dexter (though he's done), Project Runway, RuPaul's Drag Race, The Long Island Medium, Storm Chasers, American Horror Story, The Amazing Race 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.

The Sweatin’ for St. Jude Photo Shoot [Photos]

We are just days away from our first-ever Sweatin' for St. Jude event and Jaclyn and I are gearing up to spend 12 hours on side-by-side treadmills at the Owensboro Family YMCA.  To give you an idea of what to expect, Jac and I went over to the Y to become acquainted with our treadmills and pose for some publicity shots.  And, naturally, it was a hot mess.

The “We Hate Pop Country” Facebook Page

Just ask Hartford resident Bradley Wayne Jackson what he thinks about pop country music.  He rants about it on Facebook constantly and he cracks me up every single time. As you can tell from the photo above, Brad has a pretty strong opinion about the state of the country union.  And, about a week ago, I noticed that Brad found himself a social network for folks just like him.  It's the We Hate Pop Country Facebook page and it's pretty darn funny.

Video Cameras Capture Paranormal Activity in England [Video]

You must watch this.  I was tipped off to this video by Jeremy Hinton, one of the founders of the South West Paranormal Society here in Western Kentucky.  In addition to conducting routine investigations on haunted properties here in the tristate, Jeremy is always on the prowl for exciting footage from other investigators.  And he may be onto something with this footage.  It's allegedly surveillance video from Castlefield House in Manchester, England.  The building is now primarily comprised of office space, but reportedly has a long, storied history as a Roman fort and the site of a terrible and deadly cholera outbreak in the 1800's.  Real or not, this video will send chills straight up your spine.

Knottsville Boy’s St. Jude Fundraiser Earns State Recognition

This kid is a fundraising machine.  In December, Gavin Howard of Knottsville embarked on his mission to raise as much money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as he could.  With the help of his parents, Gavin designed "Peace, Love, Cure" shirts and hoodies and he's been selling them like crazy.  In fact, at press time, Gavin has sold over 500 and the orders just keep rolling in.  There have been stories about him in the Messenger-Inquirer, on WFIE, WAVE-3 in Louisville and here at WBKR.com.  And Gavin's now getting attention from the Ky State House of Representatives, who, this week, sent Gavin a special certificate of recognition.  LOOK!
