Kentucky Republicans hear from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie tomorrow at the state GOP's annual Lincoln Day Dinner. 

Many political analysts say Christie is being considered as a Vice Presidential running mate for GOP likely nominee Mitt Romney. His visit captured the attention of Democrats, including U.S. Representative John Yarmuth of Louisville, who has a press conference scheduled today to discuss Christie's visit. A statement distributed by Democrats accused Christie of "pandering to the extreme wight wing base."

At ten years old he broke all bonds of the FCC and built his own one watt pirate radio station. His childhood afternoons were spent playing music and interviewing classmates for all his friends to hear. At fourteen he began working for the local radio stations, until he graduated high school. He earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology at Murray State, and a Masters Degree in Mass Communication. In November, 2011, Chad was named Station Manager in 2016.
