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.

Clown: The Official Trailer for New Horror Film [Video]

Uh no.  I actually heard about Eli Roth's latest horror film a couple of years ago.  But it took Dimension Films until just last Friday to officially release the movie Clown.  It's about a guy who puts on a clown costume that won't come off.  In fact, it basically transforms him into this awful, homicidal, hungry, clown stalker thing that will haunt my mind forever.  Have you seen the trailer for this movie??!!  As someone who just despises clowns, this is pretty much my worst nightmare.  There is no way I am going to go see this movie!

Cell Phones Being Banned from Concerts with Yondr Pouch [Video]

Some of the biggest names in the music industry are tired of looking out from the stage and seeing their fans watching their concerts through their cell phones.  Adele recently told a fan to to quit recording her.  Before he passed away, Prince, rather infamously, got so annoyed with cell phones at his Louisville Palace concert that he played some of the show in the dark. It's a growing and persistent problem and some singers, like Alicia Keys, are doing something about it.  They're using the new Yondr pouch to essentially ban cell phone use during their shows.  This is how it works!

TripAdvisor’s Top Ten Things To Do in Owensboro, Kentucky [List]

When I travel, I use TripAdvisor a lot.  It's a great way to find out the most popular things to do in any given destination.  So, I was curios to see what visitors think about Owensboro.  I mean, I live here so I know what I like to do and what I think the highlights are.  But what is Owensboro like from the outside looking in?  A few things on the list were no brainers.  However, a couple of attractions in the Top Ten surprised me.
