There are big changes all over the TV dial locally this fall, and none will have more impact than what’s going on at WHAS-TV.

The Kentucky Kingdom Saga Hits a Low Point

It’s a local tragedy that no one is willing to come up with the money to keep the Kentucky Kingdom amusement park from collecting another year’s worth of rust. Ed Hart is holding a press conference this morning to say that the plan to re-open the park is delayed, again, for at least a...

WHAS-TV’s Fill-In Strategy

It’s storm season, so that means local TV weather guessers are putting in extra hours. And it’s no time to be short on personnel. That’s one reason WHAS-TV has called on a local weather veteran, Kim Stevens, to fill in on the air. Stevens is doing freelance weather in the spot vacated by Jamie...

So Long to The Edit, Hello to Noise&Notes

The real truth in Louisville is that some of the best political reporting to be found comes from public radio station WFPL-FM. And a few years ago, when reporter Gabe Bullard convinced the bosses over there to allow him to blog about news that didn’t always make the station’s newscast, news junkies flocked to...

Mr. Smith Emerges from Jail in Kentucky

I remember Jeff Smith as a surprisingly short but ambitious young man who stayed at my house in 2007 with his then-girlfriend, who was working with me on the Bruce Lunsford for Governor campaign.  (We lost in the May primary to Steve Beshear). I remember being fascinated by the  2006 documentary about his run...

UConn Win Good for Louisville?

I was glad to be bowling at Ten Pin Lanes last night rather than watching that brick-fest between Connecticut and Butler. I was pulling for the Bulldogs, though it set up something positive for U of L fans to discuss until October. The Cards’ record against the champion Huskies (2-1) vs. UK’s (0-2). And...

UK a TV Hit Here and Everywhere

The big question is — was anybody not watching the game Saturday night? I sure expected the Kentucky – Connecticut game to be a ratings giant locally, but the 42.6 rating/62 share that the game got locally was off the charts.  Last week’s game with North Carolina was the second-highest rating locally in history, ...
