Barb Birgy

Energetic. Loud. Fun. Menopausal. Obnoxious. Just a handful of words that probably best describes me on any given day and I own them all proudly! I was born and raised in Michigan and grew up in the country. I started my radio career in college and have loved it ever since. I’ve been blessed to work at WBKR since August of 1996 when I moved to Owensboro and I’ve kept you company on Saturday mornings ever since. Until NOW. I recently left the corporate world and decided to step into the Midday Show each weekday from 10-2. Join me for the Lunchtime Request Show and a whole lot of crazy fun! I love being part of the community and emceeing events in the tristate. I’m a champion and voice for our furry friends. I’m a HUGE sports fan and love my Michigan Wolverines and Detroit Tigers! I have two dogs named Lucy and Sadie and I spoil them rotten. I love to spend time with family and friends, listening to music, eating good food, dancing and singing…..we all know I have the voice of an angel! If I wasn’t doing what I’m doing now, I would open up a dog rescue, spend more time on artwork, do stand-up comedy, travel the world, bungee jump, swim with sharks, jump from an airplane, spend time on a nudist resort, see Garth Brooks again in concert, drink more beer, sing at the opera, buy a beach house, fly first class, sit on Tom Brady’s lap, see my Mom and Dad again or run a marathon (if I could ever stop eating french fries and cookies)!
