I'm stepping aside from Great Day Live on WHAS11. I will continue to do limited on air appearances on WHAS11 going forward but the daily grind of GDL ends now. Angie Fenton will take over as sole anchor of the show. My daily WHAS Radio show will continue every weekday from 3-6 PM. I plan to continue my radio and TV work for another three years or so before I call it a career. Thanks to all for your continuing support. You are greatly appreciated. My WHAS family means the world to me. That never changes. We love you @terrymeiners! pic.twitter.com/pFZuuqyx9R— Rachel Platt (@rplattfrazier) April 5, 2019 #tbt One of my favorite WHAS11 live shots (1995)
Hall of Fame basketball coach Denny Crum and his wife Susan are hosting the 51st Cystic Fibrosis Foundation celebrity dinner on March 9 at The Omni. We had a ball doing a live TV trial run with celeb waiters Shannon Burton (Duke basketball) and Jason Anderson (680 ESPN Radio). Denny Crum, he former University of Louisville national championship coach (1980, 1986), still works hard at community service projects. Coach's friends from the sports and media world show up at the dinner to serve as waiters and hosts. The ultimate goal is to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to eradicate CF. Susan Sweeney Crum is a well-loved former broadcast journalist who worked with me in the 1990s at WHAS before moving
I was never smart enough to get a real job. Nonetheless, this broadcasting thing seemed to work out.

In 2016, my media buddies roasted me as a fundraiser for Seven Counties Services. My earliest TV series was the nightly news magazine PM Louisville with the delightful Ange Humphrey.
Is radio dead? Is TV dead? Nope. But there is a reframing of information flow. A recent poll lists broadcasting as one of today's worst career choices. You may be surprised to learn how little most TV and radio people earn. Others predict the end of talk radio following the 2016 elections. No way. Local talk shows allow each city's residents to weigh in on local issues. The local radio station is the kitchen table where everyone can throw in their two cents or at least eavesdrop on those who do. I completely love my 40 year broadcast career and have rarely regretted choosing it. I have learned 10 million things by talking with a zillion people on
Thanks to my media buddies, we were able to raise over $100,000 for Seven Counties Services in a "Roast & Toast" on March 3, 2016. Also contributing were Denny Crum, Dawne Gee, Dean Corbett, John Boel, Mitch McConnell, John Yarmuth, and Dick Vitale.
University of Kentucky head football coach Mark Stoops joined us on Great Day Live to talk spring football, his full complement of quarterbacks, fresh running back potential, and tightening the Kentucky defense. Coach Stoops is featured on a limited edition Maker's Mark bottle to raise money for UK's Gill Heart Institute. The spring football game is April 26th at Commonwealth Stadium.
