Matt Jones bounced from TV until he decides whether he’ll run for senate

Lexington’s WLEX-TV pulled Ky Sports Radio founder Matt Jones from his nightly TV show called Hey Kentucky. Jones suggested in an interview with me that political foes pushed the TV station to bench Jones or risk the loss of commercial revenue from PACs aiming to support other Democrats in the 2020 senate race.

Journalist Al Cross says Matt Jones has an unfair advantage with his multiple media platforms, but that Jones “is not a journalist, he’s an entertainer.”

In the 840WHAS Radio interview, Jones talked of Mitch McConnell’s lack of connection with working class Kentuckians, Amy McGrath’s struggles, and state representative Charles Booker’s strengths in a potential Democrat primary next spring.

Meanwhile, as Matt Jones dawdles over his decision, another former Marine officer has jumped into the race.
