A Brat Gets Married

Welcome to the NEW WIKY web page.

WIKY and our digital partners at South Central Media have been working for a long time to develop this new and hopefully easier to use web page for WIKY.  Take some time and explore it, check out the menu items, and let me know if you see anything that doesn't work.  Email me at 

This is my new blog posts.  I'll try (and I do mean try) to post something about the show every day.  Got an idea?  Please send it to me at  See you on the radio.
