WBKR Remembers Neil Bradley [Video]

What a difference a couple of years can make in someone's life.  It was May of 2011 that Neil Bradley, from the American Red  Cross, visited the WBKR studios to teach members of our staff CPR.  Over the years, Neil has been in our studios multiple times on behalf of the Red Cross to chat about health, safety and First Aid initiatives.  He always brought with him a smile, a great sense on humor and an undeniable enthusiasm.  And it is with heavy hearts that we share the news this morning that Neil Bradley has passed away.

Go Behind The Scenes of WBKR Contest! [Video]

Here at WBKR, we LOVE giving away prizes.  But, we've always wondered what it must be like to be on YOUR side of the contest.  We constantly hear listeners say things like, "I never win anything" or "It's nearly impossible to get through on the phone" or "The phones ALWAYS busy!"  So, Taunya the Intern and I decided to try a little experiment recently.  We ran a contest during the morning show and asked for Caller #92.  While I answered the phones to try and get a winner, Taunya got her cell phone and tried to win!  And we had cameras rolling.  So, just how difficult is it to get through??  WATCH!  And you'll see both sides of the contest!!  This is a FIRST-EVER behind-the-scenes glimpse into a real WBKR prize giveaway.

Popular WBKR St. Jude Patient Ella Gets Own Website

"I don't understand why God chose me to have to fight the battle against cancer.  But I do know, that once I survive, I will try my hardest to make sure that no child ever has to do this again."  That quote comes directly from Ella Dreamer, a St. Jude patient who is battling a rare and deadly form of cancer known as adrenalcorticolcarcinoma.  If you have tuned into the WBKR/Poole's Pharmacy Care St. Jude Radiothon the last two years, you have heard Ella's story, told by her mother Jeanna, who has become a staple of our broadcasts and annual fundraising mission.  The Dreamers continue their battle against childhood cancer and continue to inspire everyone who knows or encounters them with their strength.  The latest development in this story . . . Ella continues to survive and she has taken her story to the Internet.

WBKR Pioneer Douglas Hamby Passes Away at 80

WBKR has lost one of its founding fathers.  We received news this morning that Douglas Hamby, who served as General Manager of WOMI and helped create WBKR-FM, passed away Sunday at Owensboro Medical Health System.  Not only was Douglas a U.S. Navy Veteran of the Korean War, he was a leader in the field of broadcasting and all of us here at WBKR owe our careers, at least in some part, to him.
