Thunder was Like Watching Planes Fly

Thunder was Like Watching Planes Fly

A friend of mine said no one would get the pun — that the WLKY-TV broadcast of Thunder over Louisville was so devoid of anything actually happening it was like watching paint dry, or planes fly. With a huge percentage of the planned air show canceled, the broadcast was left with a lot, A...

Champion Talks More Than Weather at They’re Off

I got lucky. At today’s They’re Off Luncheon at the Galt House, I got to sit next to Jack Guthrie, the former Derby Festival president who is a walking historian for the three-week Festival.

From Champion to the Captain – Fantastic

Weather Forecast: Rain. Cold. Wind. Get over it. The best seat for Thunder may be in front of your TV.  The broadcast is on WLKY-TV. Champion Weatherman: When I first heard that the best the Derby Festival could do for a They’re Off luncheon speaker was an ABC weather reporter,  it was disappointing. But...

A Payne-Full Chain of Events

The fact that a local blogger filed a lawsuit because of something on the Internet that he doesn’t like is pretty ironic. But I’m hearing from a lot of people who are taking some measure of delight in the story. Yesterday the C-J reported that Jake Payne, operator of Page One Kentucky and The...

Obviously Those Metro Council Funds Should be Cut

This morning’s C-J editorial addresses an obvious point to anyone who wants good government — the discretionary money provided by the city to Metro Council members should be drastically reduced or eliminated.

WLKY Hires Investigator with a Reputation

When John Boel left WLKY-TV last year, the station lost a strong daily anchor AND its best investigative reporter. So when it came time to replace him, the station knew that hiring another reporter on the way up from a smaller market wouldn’t cut it. Glenn Haygood, the station’s GM, says that hiring Duane...
