Thanks to Kirt Jacobs for a comfortable chat about me, my life, and my career. I prefer asking questions of others but Kirt made this a pleasant experience.
We taped it 7 months ago so I have very little memory of what was said but whatever it was…I said it with 100% sincerity.
Thanks for watching.
The fact that my last name is misspelled on the Vimeo makes me even happier. That’s my life. Never get caught up in the little things, baby.

After a surprisingly close primary win for Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, I asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell if he would offer support for Bevin’s re-election in the November general election.
McConnell and Bevin have a complicated relationship stemming back to Bevin’s campaign to unseat McConnell in 2014. The McConnell team labeled their opponent Bailout Bevin, calling him a con man and liar.
Today on WHAS Radio, Senator McConnell promised to fully support Bevin’s re-election. Kentucky’s senior senator also touted attorney general candidate Daniel Cameron, a former McConnell staffer. Kentucky has not had a Republican attorney general since the 1940s.

As for the ongoing acrimony between President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, here are both sides of the story. First from the Speaker of the House:
Trump aide Kellyanne Conway said Pelosi’s account of the failed presidential meeting was untrue, that Trump calmly left the room and Pelosi told Conway “I don’t speak to staff.”

So proud of my childhood best buddy Dr. Henry Sadlo 👨🏼⚕️ Louisville's #1 cardiologist was just inducted into the St. Stephen Martyr Hall of Fame. @UofLPhysicians #PiperCourt #TheRuffians pic.twitter.com/z1AEWapHfd

Dr. Henry Sadlo has been my running mate since we met in 1963. There is not a kinder, more compassionate person on this earth. I’m delighted to see that he has been inducted into our elementary school’s hall of fame.
I went to UK and he went to UofL but that didn’t slow our love and respect for each other. While Henry was away doing his medical school residency in Atlanta, I hung around with his dad, a kindred spirit.
Henry and I still talk once or twice a week, take heart healthy walks with groups of our buddies, and keep an eye out for each other’s successes. We’ve counseled each other through tumult and cheered the magical moments.
No relationship in life tops being a best friend. Each listens without judging and provides help without question. It’s a bond that strengthens through ages, stabilized by shared philosophy and mutual love of life.
Cheers, Hank. We both saw our dreams come true. I’m a well-known idiot and you’re a respected doctor, both outcomes we envisioned a half century ago.
Mary and I had a ball at Unbridled Eve and the next day at the 145th Kentucky Derby…
Yahoo Sports columnist Pat Forde tells the jaw-dropping tale of unbridled elation followed by Maximum Security’s designation as “a racing immortal for all the wrong reasons.”
President Trump weighed in with a misspelled tweet, later reposted with the correct spelling of Kentucky.
📻 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell jumped on the radio with me to talk about chicken chomping Democrats, why he is proudly called The Grim Reaper, defining socialism in 2019, if investigating the investigators is overkill, Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling AG William Barr a criminal, Sen. Mazie Hirono lobbing 🔥 at Trump, just WHO IS REALLY IN CHARGE!, and Liberals’ favorite Kentucky Derby horse 🎙️ 🏇🏽 840WHAS #USpolitics
Katherine Switzer is an American hero, the first women to register and run the Boston Marathon back in the 60s when it was a male-only event.
A race official spotted her and tried to yank her off of the course. Katherine and her colleagues weren’t having it. She persisted and finished the race.
It opened the gates for women’s competition in all levels of sports.
To this day, marathon running is the one true test of human athleticism without regard to gender. There are no red tees. There is no smaller sized ball.
Lifting weights, riding bikes, pull-ups, javelin throws…they’re all measurements of skill and endurance but marathon running is in a class of its own.
The marathon course is 26.2 miles and every runner’s individual time is electronically recorded. The starting gun goes off and the timer begins when each runner’s bib crosses the start line and ends when that bib crosses the finish.
Now that’s equality.
📻 Here’s meteorologist Jeremy Kappell on his lawsuit vs Rochester’s WHEC, the cruel actions of Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren & gutless TV general manager Dick Reingold, support from Al Roker, Don Lemon, Craig Melvin, and Rochester viewers, other weather people mispronouncing MLK without a beatdown, and how public shaming strengthened Jeremy’s family & faith 🎙️ #bullies #media DETAILS on the Kappell website.
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren demanded Jeremy Kappell’s firing without ever speaking to him or communicating with him in any capacity. Mayor Warren understands forgiveness as she is married to a man who drove the getaway car in a jewelry store robbery 20 years ago. She also defended a Rochester council member accused of embezzling tens of thousands of dollars, imploring the public to avoid judging the councilman without knowing all of the facts.
WHEC-TV station manager Dick Reingold, a gutless weasel who doesn’t stand up for employees who speak live on air without a script. A manager of live broadcasters has a primary job to defend his on air talent. Dick is likely fearful of losing political advertising dollars or chopped Kappell because he was the highest paid weather department employee. WHEC-TV advertising and ratings are reportedly down since the Kappell firing.
How much should aunts and uncles dole out to a 2019 college graduate? $100, maybe $200. Best thing to do is ask someone who’s about to graduate. When it’s your niece, it’s a joy to share.
Here’s my radio chat with Addie Meiners, the next media superstar.
What a delight to broadcast from Keeneland Race Course and run into not one – but two! – of my sweet nieces. I held both of these girls just hours after they were born and have loved them dearly their entire lives.
Addie Meiners (daughter of my brother Mike) will graduate from the University of Kentucky in May and is already an accomplished sports broadcaster. She’s done radio and television shows, and made stadium announcements on the Jumbotrons at UK’s Kroger Field in front of 60,000+ fans.
Lauren Russell Konen (daughter of my sister Denise Russell) is a respected nurse practitioner and mother to two incredible babies. Lauren is the same tender soul and family leader she’s been since childhood.
Family. Nothing better.
