When America laughs at the weather dude, it's a good news day! Media bloopers. Always great stuff. WAVE3's Ryan Hoke made the above blooper reel. You'll see it at the :37 mark. Sportswriter Rick Bozich knows his stuff, but just like 99% of us, he cannot properly pronounce the name of Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. Watch below via the Jimmy Kimmel Show. Not only is Giannis Antetokounmpo impossible to defend, he’s impossible to pronounce… #NBAFinals pic.twitter.com/kz5aOdac6k— Jimmy Kimmel Live (@JimmyKimmelLive) July 15, 2021 Bozich writes: And for those of you who love wacky TV graphics, think about the young person working at WAVE3 news who labeled University of Louisville national champion Milt Wagner as a "fan" commenting on a team issue in 2018.
It's still a year away but WHAS Radio will turn 100 on July 18, 2022. WHAS was Kentucky's first licensed radio station. What a wild trip it's been! 🎧 current WHAS audio: morning show, mid-morning, afternoons 🎧 historical audio Here's what WHAS-TV dug up in its video vault to note the radio station's 95th birthday in 2017. The Courier-Journal and Louisville Times Company obtained the broadcast license in 1922 and built a studio near the newspaper facility. This fall, current WHAS Radio owner iHeart Media will move the studio operations from Bishop Lane in the Newburg area back to downtown. WHAS has enjoyed a fantastic array of broadcast talent over the past century. The station has won prestigious awards for news coverage, emergency operations
First it was sabotage. Then a possibility of ingested urine soaked hay. Or was it a bit of cough syrup left by a careless groom? Jimson weed accidentally mixed in the feed? No wait...it's CANCEL CULTURE! 🤔 "I think it was just a knee jerk, cancel culture kind of reaction. They violated my due process..." -@BobBaffert on the statement released by @ChurchillDowns @KentuckyDerby pic.twitter.com/AE5kom6YlQ — Dan Patrick Show (@dpshow) May 10, 2021 Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has been running through an endless stream of excuses as to how his Kentucky Derby winning horse Medina Spirit failed a post-victory drug test. Medina Spirit tested for an excessive amount of betamethasone, an anti-inflammatory. Baffert was baffled. He said that his team does not use that drug.

These videos display Louisville's top impediment to the post-pandemic Build Back Better plan. Hordes of screaming protesters continue to block traffic, destroy property, and ignore police commands to allow traffic to move freely. This activity creates economic stagnation for Louisville as other peer cities slowly work to recover from the pandemic. Why would anyone choose to do business in Louisville if they cannot feel safe or comfortable about a peaceful future here? In 2021 after the conviction of a Minnesota police officer for choking George Floyd, Black Lives Matter protests are still highly active in many American cities. Lawlessness is essentially tolerated by Louisville city leadership, leaving LMPD to absorb abuse from protesters. Police officers must gently line up to encourage
NEW: Derek Chauvin has been found GUILTY on all three counts. Live coverage continues on @840WHAS & https://t.co/PsGI0GRrPj. https://t.co/6h5VdKA8rq— News Radio 840 WHAS (@840WHAS) April 20, 2021 Van Jones is 100% Van Jones on what a not guilty verdict in the Chauvin trial would mean: "If a police officer can do this, what can't they do to us? What can't they do to our children?

Larry Bird is the greatest American sports star ever. Come at me. Read his story. His mom couldn't properly care for him during his early life. His dad killed himself. He immersed himself in basketball to make the miserable noise of his home life go away. Larry and his mom got to a better place later in life. As for basketball...you know the rest. Since the editing tool on this web editor clipped Larry's head in the top photo, here is the entirety of my most treasured celebrity interaction. At the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013, I was departing a brunch and jumped on an escalator. I could feel that someone was right behind me. I turned to see Larry Bird towering
Here's Air France flying a Boeing 777 into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on a visual approach to runway 24 Right. Terrific graphics and excellent sound allows the viewer to observe the pilots at work running through the landing checklist while acknowledging vectors in one of America's busiest airports. If you can forgive the shaky camera work, this is a great look at a crew taking another Boeing 777 into Chicago O'Hare Airport (ORD) runway 10 Center. The person holding the camera is doing the best they can but it should be noted that the passengers aren't shaking this vigorously on approach and after landing. This is an excellent pre-flight operations peek aboard an Aer Lingus Airbus 330 as the crew preps
