Jon Prell

I have been at WKDQ for 13 years and have loved every minute of it. My career started in Southern California and I arrived in Evansville in 1994. I have three children that keep me very busy and the rare opportunity to go out and not have a six foot mouse serving your table is a rare and welcome treat. I love motorcycles and classic country and even host the WKDQ Country Classics show every Saturday from 6-10am. If I can I can ever play a song for you, let me know at wkdq.com.

Security Camera Footage of a Tornado Taking Out a Playground Is Frightening

The last couple of years has seen the Midwest and parts of the South devastated by tornadoes....hundreds of them reeking havoc and destroying lives.

Being In An Elevator Can Be More Interesting Than You Think

This morning, Leslie and I were talking about a story in which a moving guy got stuck in an elevator with an elderly woman who had trouble standing for long periods of time. So, the mover got down on all fours and acted as a bench for the woman to sit on until help arrived, which is a great and heartwarming story.
