Asia Burnett

Development Director

Asia has been hooked on NPR ever since first hearing Garrison Keillor talk about that extraordinary species: the English major. A Murray State gal through and through, she studied English and a whole slew of Liberal Arts as an undergrad and went on to get her Master of Business Administration. Asia worked as a legal secretary before following her passion for public radio to WKMS and becoming our underwriting representative for the Murray-Mayfield area this past year. In January, 2013, Asia moved from Underwriting Representative to Development Director.

She says getting to interact with uniquely thoughtful and intelligent WKMS listeners each day is a treat for both her and the businesses that lend their underwriting support. If you’re a business owner looking to underwrite with the station, you can find her grooving to The Jive House, drooling over Splendid Table or generally learning something new from WKMS. She also enjoys homemade guacamole, zombie reenactments, and Johnny Mathis Christmas music.

Underwriter Spotlight: 3 Hearts Yoga in Murray

One underwriter sharing the love during the month of Valentine is 3 Hearts Yoga of Murray. The new yoga studio and juice bar is passionate about healthy living, and owner Marcy Snodgrass has good reason to be. After having open heart surgery at age 23, and being told she would be on medication for the rest of her life - she knew there had to be a better way. That's when she began practicing yoga and changed her nutritional lifestyle. Over the years her passion has grown - as has her desire to share her skill with the community.

Underwriter Spotlight: SEVA Fitness in Paducah

WKMS welcomed another new underwriter recently - Eric Romanak and SEVA Fitness in Paducah. You might be tempted to think of barbells and treadmills and lots of lycra when you think about fitness, but that's not really what SEVA Fitness is about. 

Eric explains what he does as a "health first" approach, meaning instead of just working to "look better," SEVA Fitness strives to help you "feel better" by teaching holistic fitness and health. As a health and wellness coach, Eric offers personal, individualized training incorporating practices like yoga and martial arts to help with mobility, strength, athleticism and even weight loss.
