Kelly Wallingford is a Powell County Kentucky graduate of 1980, and the fall of that year, started his radio career as a evening DJ at WEKG/WJSN in Jackson, Ky, while attending Lee's Jr. College. The principles of WEKG/WJSN also owned WIRV-AM in Irvine, where Wallingford soon transitioned. Wallingford eventually bought in as a part owner of WIRV. He later bought out his partner and launched WCYO-FM "The Coyote" in 1992. In 1999, Wallingford acquired WEKY-AM, WKXO-AM, and WKXO-FM in Madison County. Soon, WKXO -FM was rebranded as 106.7 'The Dog'. In 2016, Wallingford added three more FM's to the company. 99.3 in Irvine, 92.5 in Richmond, and 103.5 in Berea. The companies growth and expansion has been extensive, and 2017 marks the transition into Richmond's first TV station, WBON-TV, as well as web, phone apps, and other digital media products for our clients in the greater Richmond area. Wallingford resides with his wife Bess on their Madison County farm, complete with cattle, horses, dogs and kitties.
