He truly believes the best was meeting and marrying his wife Donna. An Elizabethtown resident since 1996, Brian is a huge fan of music, movies and is full of useless trivia. The Walker kids, son Keegan and daughter Addison, attend Hardin County Schools and both are active in soccer and various school activities.

I was raised in Florida, but landed in Kentucky when my husband got stationed at Ft. Knox. We loved the area so much that we retired here. My husband, 2 daughters, myself, and let’s not forget about our mini-horse of a dog, live in Elizabethtown. Growing up, my dream was always to work in law enforcement so that’s what my degree is in. I worked in the field before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my daughters. My experience in criminal justice has nothing to do with how I got in radio, but I use those skills to my advantage when dealing with the crazy folks I work with behind the mic….that’s all I’m saying. I absolutely love my job and that makes it easier to get up before the crack of dawn each workday.

Adam was born in upstate New York, and from a young age, he loved tinkering and fixing things. He always imagined being on the radio. In 1997 Adam and his family moved to the Dayton, Ohio area. Beginning in 2001, Adam started attending a trade school for information technology. He had planned to attend college in Chicago when one of his high school teachers encouraged him to change his career path. Instead, he paid his way through a local college and graduated in 2006 with a degree in Visual Communications. That same year Adam married his high school sweetheart Jennifer. Later in 2008, Adam and Jennie moved to Hodgenville, Kentucky, where he began working as a freelance graphic designer. At the same time, Adam became heavily involved with his local church by volunteering as a board operator. In 2013 Adam and his family changed their church home to First Christian Church in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Here Adam would volunteer as a camera operator and later as a lighting designer, where he would earn the nickname master of all things light and sound. By 2016 Adam was working full time as a freelance graphic designer, photographer, regularly hosting trivia, and even had worked as the light designer for several concerts. In 2018 his lifelong dream of being on the radio became a reality. In under one year, Adam went from running the live church service on Quicksie to recording a night shift to being the live afternoon show host. In 2019 Adam and his family moved to Elizabethtown to be closer to family and work. In 2020, Adam gladly accepted the role of Chief Operator for WQXE and WULF. He believes in serving his church, family, and community. Adam is an active deacon at First Christian Church. Adam and his wife are the proud parents of three energetic children.
