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.

Mr. G and Jellybean: Goat and Burro Reunited [Video]

I am gonna own it.  I saw this story on the news and I cried.  Did you hear about Mr. G and Jellybean?  An animal sanctuary rescued a goat named Mr. G from a hoarder.  But, for days, he just sat around completely depressed and refused to eat.  Then, the folks at Animal Place learned that Mr. G had been living with a burro named Jellybean who was his best friend.  So, the staff decided to reunite them.  And THIS happened!

Chad’s Great Nephew Caiden: A Movie Star in Training [Photos]

Ripe hot messes run in my family.  And my great nephew Caiden is no exception.  This boy is already proving to be like the rest of us . . . very funny, insanely defiant and a touch dramatic.  LOL!  He was in full force on Memorial Day at the family cookout.  And it occurred to me that he's a little movie star in the making.  In fact, he already reminds me of some of pop culture's most recognizable icons.  LOOK!
