Hoptown This Morning – Eddie Owen & Kim Allen


Eddie Owen

Eddie Owen is a Hopkinsville native and started on the radio exactly one week after graduating high school. He attended UK where he majored in broadcasting. Now after 40+ years of radio and television experience, he is the co-host of Hoptown This Morning on 96.5FM and 1480AM with Ann Petrie and also holds down 9 AM – Noon on WKDZ.

These days, in addition to radio, he is involved in the travel business and frequently hosts trips and cruises through his ELO Travel Company.

The epitome of the UK sports fan, he handles state and national sports for WKDZ and WHVO, and runs the UK sports site WildcatLair.com and the Facebook forum of the same name.

Kim Allen

Just your local hometown girl… I was born and raised in Hopkinsville and in 2005, I moved “down the road” to Cadiz. I love my communities!

I have been with WKDZ and WHVO since 2011. My first broadcasting experience was with WNKJ after graduating from Christian County High School. After 11 years as a part-time broadcaster, I began a full-time career with Wal-Mart, Inc. My first job was as an over-night stocker and for 11 years worked and learned the retail industry and finished my time with the company as Vision Center manager and licensed optician.

You can join me Saturdays from 10AM-3PM on WHVO. Hopefully, you can even stop by and visit during one of our many decades parties or community broadcast!

In my “spare” time, I enjoy being outdoors with my family fishing and hunting. When I can, I spend time creating art and craft items or, if it gets quiet enough, reading a good book. Since I have always been around animals my whole life, I have 2 beautiful cats, Abigail and Tater, and 2 wonderful dogs, Ellie Mae and Lucy. All of our furry family members have been rescued and hold a very special place in our hearts.

Currently, I now reside in Cadiz with my husband, Jeff. Our youngest son Joseph has become a Marine and is finishing his medical degree. I’m am so glad to have our oldest son, Chris and daughter-in-law, Danielle close by in Louisville and our son Josiah down the road in Murray.
