📻 @DrRickyLJones analyzes McGrath vs Booker, political courage, Black Power in 2020, equal decision making with White people, and why Sammy Sosa is dead to him. 🎙 @840WHAS audio ▶️ https://t.co/VG39nSjGdL #race #community #BlackLivesMatter 📸 @Utterback13 @courierjournal pic.twitter.com/kcYe4qd8Xz— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) June 24, 2020 Those who want to see everything through a lens of race and class, judging individuals based on immutable characteristics, pretend to be fighting the very thing they are enacting. And none of us wish to speak up because we have been bullied into silence. Anyway how was your day?— Sean Ono Lennon (@seanonolennon) June 24, 2020
Today would have been Breonna Taylor's 27th birthday. She's dead. On March 13, LMPD officers shot her in her apartment after activating a no-knock warrant in search of someone who was not there. Breonna's boyfriend Kenneth Walker awoke from the police invasion and shot at what he thought were burglars. Police returned fire, wounding Walker and killing Taylor. Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets to honor Breonna in a movement launched following the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd. Four police officers have been arrested over Floyd's death but none of the Louisville officers have been charged in the killing of Breonna Taylor. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer appeared on the radio with me tonight to answer questions about the protests, Breonna's
One of my favorite recurring guests on 840WHAS is Louisville comedian Raanan Hershberg. He's been on the radio with me for years and always bring fresh material. It was fun to see him on CBS the other night delivering a lot of the jokes that he honed on the radio or onstage at The Bard's Town theater. Way to go, Raanan. Outstanding job! Thanks buddy! I Honed all the jokes on your show. See yah soon— Raanan Hershberg (@Raanancomedy) January 15, 2020 Here's our most recent radio interview on 840WHAS.
The Papa John interview is lovely pic.twitter.com/bpDMDm9t9G— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) November 26, 2019 Louisville's beleaguered businessman "Papa" John Schnatter is still flailing at the ghosts of his previous life. Schnatter was famously removed from his chairman/CEO position at Papa John's International and has been forced to diminish his majority ownership position after a series of caustic verbal missteps. In 2012, Schnatter created a "clueless rich guy" backlash after he bemoaned the costs of providing employee health care. A few years later, Schnatter insulted NFL players who were kneeling during national anthem performances to protest police brutality. He lost his CEO position but remained chairman. The final and most explosive meltdown came after Schnatter said the N-word on a 2018 diversity training
A flood of Bill Murray sightings popped onto social media this week. The actor known as being the most chill celebrity in the world spends time in Louisville with his son Luke, a top recruiter and assistant coach for University of Louisville men's basketball. Luke and his wife Kara are expecting their second child soon. Murray loves visiting his son's family, even handing out Halloween candy at their home last October. This week, Louisville's head basketball coach Chris Mack hosted an old guy basketball camp complete with competition, film breakdown, celebrity guests like Bill Murray and Jay Bilas, and a championship game. Even though I wore a uniform, I played the role of general manager for some of my much younger colleagues like
📻 @RepJohnYarmuth inspects migrant conditions on the U.S.🇺🇸-Mexico🇲🇽 border, also: should @AmyMcGrathKy skip #FancyFarm and why are @TheDemocrats crushing Obama? #immigration #ICE #election2020 🎙️ LISTEN https://t.co/8Bo4M7RQA3 #kypolitics #kysen @840WHAS pic.twitter.com/YoPLJcQ60K— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) August 2, 2019 Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) spoke on my radio show from the El Paso, Texas airport after inspecting the holding facilities for illegal immigrants. Yarmuth reported that the housing situation was clean and lightly inhabited, a scenario he suspected had been tidied up before the arrival of the congressional delegation. Yarmuth also talked about the shocking specter of debating Democrats trashing Barack Obama for not being "woke" enough during his 8 years in the presidency. Many of the current presidential hopefuls are going to extreme measures
Rick Pitino is mad at me again. The former University of Louisville basketball coach and I are longtime friends but he has thrown hissy fits when I've publicly questioned him about sensitive issues. He even dropped me as co-host of his TV show for two years over tensions surrounding coverage of his affair with sketchy doughnut seller Karen Sypher. Then there was the time I asked him if mounting evidence of strippers offering sex to his players and recruits would make him consider resigning. Pitino didn't speak to me for a year and even avoided looking at me when we crossed paths in our St. Matthews neighborhood. Of course, I've gone on national TV and newspapers of record to defend Pitino
Here are many of our iHeart Radio broadcast voices reciting the Declaration of Independence. Have a wonderful birthday, Americans! Celebrate freedom. Listen to "iHeart Louisville's Rendition of the Declaration of Independence" on Spreaker. And our apologies for one of our guys mispronouncing the word tyranny. Oops!

?️ Friday launches my 33rd year on WHAS Radio and television. We ran a contest on my 1st radio show where hundreds of people guessed when I would be fired or leave. The winner gets $500. Only two entries are still valid. Jim McClellan needs me gone within three years or else Robert Rudolph is the winner. #loumedia #radiopersonality #Louisville My radio career began in September 1976 at WKQQ in Lexington, although I did not go on the air until late 1977. Therefore my total broadcast career has surpassed the 40 year mark.
