Rumor Has It a ‘Justified’ Actor Secretly Lives in Owensboro

I'm a huge fan of the FX series "Justified." It's a dark and violent crime drama set in eastern Kentucky that kind of plays out like a modern-day western. Great premise. Great stories. One of the main characters is Boyd Crowder, played by Walton Goggins. And I've heard some stories about him...

Kentucky Tornadoes Bring Back Memories of Scary Sirens, Cigars, and Vanishing Kiwanians

The tornado (we think it was one) that blew past the WBKR studios on Friday afternoon took me back 12 years to 2000. That F3 tornado (we knew it was one) that ripped through Owensboro on January 3 created the exact same high-velocity visuals we saw just two days ago. Yes, Friday's storms took me back 12 years.

Answer: no reason.

You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for…Barbeque

I am awarding WBKR Sales Manager Traci Davis the "Golden Smoke Pit." It's a hypothetical award because it doesn't physically exist; she'll never receive anything she can sit on her desk next to the computer. But anyone who brings in Old Hickory barbecue for lunch deserves SOMETHING. Even if it's mythical.
