Brian Walker spent 10 years in radio at a variety of stations and formats in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kentucky before leaving the air – for good he thought – in early 2001. Brian returned to radio in the summer of 2016 for the express purpose of being a member of Team Quicksie! Some great things happened during his original run as a broadcaster. 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. As for Brian and Donna, they spend all their time being the parents of 2 kids who are involved 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.
Weekdays 10a to 3p, Sunday 8a to 9a “Praise & Shine”
Scott’s first part time radio job was in November 1980 at WWKK in Radcliff, which then lead to a full time position in the summer of 1981 at their sister station WSAC. In addition to his full time job, he also worked weekend shifts from 1983-1985 in Louisville at WRKA, and then 84 WHAS. In the spring of 1985, he accepted a full time job offer with WAKY/WVEZ in Louisville. After that, in 1986, he worked for WIEL in Elizabethtown (while working part time again for 84 WHAS on the side). By September 1987, he became Production Director at 84 WHAS for the next 21 years. In early 2008, Scott came to work at WQXE as Production Director, and he loves it! Scott says “WQXE is a great place with great people!” In October 2008, Scott married his beautiful wife Debi, and he says she is such a wonderful blessing in his life. They love movies, going to film conventions and meeting the folks both in front of and behind the cameras, plus, they love spending time with family and friends, taking long walks, swimming, bowling, and playing UNO.

Adam was born in upstate New York, and from a young age he loved ‘tinkering’ and fixing things, and always imagined being in radio. In the mid 90’s he moved to the Dayton, Ohio area. By the early 2000’s Adam was attending trade school, and planned to attend college in Chicago for information technology, when he was inspired to change his career path by one of his teachers. So he paid his way through local college, and graduated in 2006 with a degree in Visual Communications, and married Jennie. In 2008 Adam and Jennie moved to Hodgenville, Kentucky where he began taking freelance graphic design work and volunteering as a board operator at a local church. Adam began volunteering as a camera operator and light programmer for First Christian Church in Elizabethtown where he earned the nickname ‘Master of all things light and sound’. By this point, he was freelancing graphic design, regularly hosting trivia and even the lighting designer for a few concerts. In 2019 Adam and his family moved to Elizabethtown. He believes in serving his church, family, and community. Adam and Jennie are the proud parents of three energetic kids. Truly a ‘jack-of-all’ trades, he looks forward to what the future holds at Quicksie.

Matt English spent the first 8 years of his working career behind a microphone at Quicksie 98.3.

Matt’s life is in this community having spent all but his first 10 years in Hardin County and is raising an amazing family – wife Melinda and kids Micah and Makena. Matt’s a big-time Star Wars and Marvel movie fan and can be seen wearing a Darth Vader costume on Halloween (and any other day if he feels like it).
