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.

Wild Bill’s Olde Fashion Soda Pop Co. [Video]

Jaclyn and I got thirsty at the International Bar-B-Q Festival.  That's what happens after you eat deep fried desserts, a turkey leg and some burgoo without taking a drink.  LOL!  But, then, we stumbled across Wild Bill's Olde Fashion Soda Pop Co. and it was delicious.  Let us introduce you!

The Fritz’s BBQ Redneck Burgoo: The Chad & Jac Taste Test [Video]

A couple of weeks ago here at WBKR, we sold our 2015 Restaurant Card through Seize the Deal.  And one of the items on that card was Redneck Burgoo from Fritz's BBQ Shack here in Owensboro.  Well, Jaclyn and I stumbled across the Fritz's crew yesterday at their mobile booth set up at the International Bar-B-Q Festival.  And we decided to get our redneck on.  Check out our official taste test!

WBKR Sales Executive Rescues a Hummingbird with CPR [Photos]

This is pretty incredible.  WBKR sales associate Bill Eidson was sitting on a patio bench at his home Saturday afternoon when he heard something hit a window in his house.  He quickly realized that a hummingbird had flown into the window and knocked itself unconscious.  In fact, the little guy fell right there on the patio.  So, Bill (channeling a little Dr. Doolittle) went to work and tried to revive the hummingbird.  And, you know what?  It worked!  Here's how he did it!

Chad Demonstrates How to Use The Squatty Potty [Video]

A couple of weeks ago, I happened to catch the makers of the Squatty Potty on ABC's show Shark Tank.  And I was absolutely fascinated by the idea that, instead of sitting to use the restroom, humans really are designed to "pop a squat".  And the Squatty Potty is designed to help us do just that.  It helps us do the "doo".  So, I just had to have one.  Say goodbye to grunting like Maria Sharapova playing tennis.  Say goodbye to popping a vein like you're in the movie Scanners!  Say goodbye to moaning and groaning like you're being forced to listen to Sarah Palin.  Say "hello" to the Squatty Potty and my instructional in-home demonstration!

The City of Owensboro Declares a War on Portholes

Our winter was a beast! It totally wrecked our nerves, but it also wrecked the streets around the City of Owensboro.  In fact, the constant freezing and thawing allowed water to seep under the pavement causing potholes all over the place.  And now, the Owensboro Street Department is waging war on them and need you to tell them where the potholes are.
