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.

A brand new restaurant is opening Thursday morning in downtown Owensboro.  Another Broken Egg Cafe, which is situated inside the lobby at the brand new Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront, is ready to hatch.  And, yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet the owner, manager, staff and sample some of the selections on the menu.  And, let me tell you, I had an amazing time visiting the nest!  And I have some mouth-watering photos to share with all you little chickadees!

WBKR’s Aunt Mary Passes Away at 86 [Photos]

She loved ringing in the New Year with Steve Horn.  She loved visiting The WBKR Waking Crew and hanging out in the studio with Moon and me.  She didn't mind us busting up into her yard sales and broadcasting live from her front yard.  She had a massive crush on Alan Jackson and, literally, had a shrine to him in her home.  And she made the best chess bars in the world.  We absolutely loved and adored Mary Catherine Bayles and are so sad to report our Aunt Mary has passed away at the age of 86.
