The West Kentucky Events Newsletter now reaches over 7,025 subscribers. It is extremely popular because of the interest people have in area events, concerts and the many activities available in the lakes area. Clay Campbell, owner of the Kentucky Opry, is the publisher, and his wife, Barbie, is the weekly editor.

The newsletter combines events, festivals, and happenings for areas such as Murray, Mayfield, Cadiz, Eddyville, Benton, and Marshall County in addition to the Paducah region. We even carry some events in Southern Illinois. We will gladly include an article promoting your event, or an event you are sponsoring.

For links in the left sidebar, there is a directory listing fee of $120 per year. This is free if you have paid for an ad to be included in the newsletter.
