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.

Chad’s Dogs Stage Their Own Snowy Version of the Puppy Bowl [Video]

My dogs love snow.  So imagine how happy they were Sunday afternoon when I opened the back door to the house and they discovered a virtual winter wonderland in the backyard.  Wilma, my standard schnauzer, was content to just casually stroll around and occasionally dip her nose in the snow.  Dolly, my bichon frise, was not quite as content.  In fact, when she realized I had the video camera, she decided to go batpoop crazy and audition for the Puppy Bowl!  Bless Wilma's heart.  Dolly terrorized her.  WATCH!

Owensboro’s Jason Koger Featured in New Television Ad [Video]

This is very cool and super exciting.  Owensboro native Jason Koger, the city's very own "Bionic Man," is featured in a brand new TV ad for Macintosh and Apple.  The ad, shot around the world on iPhones in just one day, celebrates Mac's 30th anniversary of delivering on its promise . . .to put technology in the hands of the people.  And for Jason Koger that notion is both literal and figurative.  Check this out!

Sign Up Now for the Polar Bear Plunge [Video]

How's that for an action shot?  Just a fraction of a second after hovering above the Hines Center Lake, we were swimming in it.  And a fraction of a second after this pic was taken,  I  was swearing like Andrew Dice Clay.  And, you know what?  I'm ready to do it all over again.  The freezing AND the swearing.  LOL!  The 2014 Polar Bear Plunge is coming up Saturday, February 8th at The Hines Center in Philpot and we are looking for folks to join us in raising money for Special Olympics Kentucky.

Daviess County Pantherettes Sweep 3rd Region Dance Team Championships

The Ultimate Karaoke Party Foul [Video]

This is hilarious!  When Jaclyn, Barby Birgy and I went to Memphis a couple of weeks ago for our annual St. Jude conference, we went to a karaoke bar on Beale Street.  And, there, Barb committed the ultimate karaoke party foul.  She rushed the stage during a gal's rousing rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and tried to turn a solo into a duet.  And the gal just wasn't having it.  In addition to trying to take Barb out with a well-timed soccer mom arm, she finally decided to hoard the microphone and move to the complete outer-edge of the stage.  This is a riot!  And Barb just keeps on singing . . .
