WIKY's Newsroom has expanded.  Randy Wheeler has earned the most ellusive of all early morning broadcasting rewards - an alarm clock that goes off much later.  Listen for Randy with WIKY News coverage throughout middays on WIKY, including the big News at Noon.

We welcome Mark Evans to Evansville (could that be why we hired him?) and to the WIKY Morning Show.  Mark's a bit of a radio gypsy like Diane and me and came to the Tri-State by way of Birmingham, Alabama.  We decided it might be a good idea to show him around and experience some of our favorite th

 I've discussed Operation Christmas Child on the air the past couple weeks and I want to share it with you.  Operation Christmas Child is a great ministry of Samaritans Purse where you can provide shoebox Christmas gifts to children all over the world. Not only are gifts provided, but the Gospel is shared with each gift that is passed out, so children can receive the ultimate gift of Salvation.  Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has passed out over 77 million shoe boxes. It is a great national ministry, but there are also many ways you can get involved locally.

I'm sure like me you were devastated on Friday morning when you heard about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

I have been talking about Winter Jam a lot on the show recently.  I am very excited about it and I hope you are too! However, in order to bring a huge tour like Winter Jam to Evansville, a lot of help is needed.  We are in need of 65 volunteers to help the day of the show.  Some jobs may include selling merchandise, tickets, money collecting and other tasks.  If your interested you will need to be at Robert's Stadium at 4:30 pm on Thursday, March 24th and work until 10 or 11 pm that night.

I told you a few weeks ago about a new book that I got for Christmas.  It's called "City On Our Knees" and it's by Toby Mac (you know who that is right).  It is great book that shares stories of people just like you and me who stand up and make a difference.  I wanted to share with you one of the stories from the book and I hope it can inspire you like it did me.

It seems like Christmas has just crept up on me this year.  So far this month we have started Joyful Noise, welcomed Chris Tomlin to Evansville, and my church has had their annual Living Nativity.  Christmas is right around the corner.  This season is such a great time of year, but it can also be very busy and downright stressful.  We have to get Christmas gifts, attend all the holiday parties and gatherings, and still keep Peace on Earth.  Not to mention, Christmas can also be a very difficult time for many people who have lost loved ones in the past year.
