West Kentucky Star is the online extension of the news you hear presented on Paducah's Bristol Broadcasting radio stations, including News Talk 94.3, country stations 93.3 WKYQ and Willie 102, and contemporary stations Electric 96-9 and 94.7 The Mix.
Since 2009, the news department staff listed below has added to their broadcasting duties the 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year task of keeping you up to date on what's happening in western Kentucky, southern Illinois and northwest Tennessee. Their untiring efforts have already resulted in multiple awards from the Associated Press for website design and content, and a growing regional and national reputation for excellence in reporting.
We know you’re not really supposed to brag, but we have to say that our team really hustles and it yields some pretty impressive results for such a small team.
Along with the full time staff, many other people contribute regularly to the Star from all walks of life.  If you are interested in joining our team as a stringer reporter, feature or editorial writer, photographer or something we haven't even thought of yet, send an email to .
