WAVE3 would like for you to have a kitty. My teammates at WHAS11 are rating snacks. Over on WLKY, it's breaking news about dog faces on St. Patrick's Day shirts. And WDRB is squabbling with service providers to get reinstated. All local stations go through these rate negotiations from time to time. WDRB's typically news heavy website does occasionally throw in some fluff.
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin texted: "Are you on air today?" Me: "Yes sir." Gov. Bevin: "Want me to stop by?" Me: "Absolutely" A few minutes later, Governor Bevin strolled into my studio and we launched right into a 23 minute chat on a myriad of topics. Local media immediately jumped on Bevin's sardonic comment about America's "soft" culture where school is called off for cold temperatures. .@GovMattBevin told @terrymeiners that #Kentucky schools closing for cold weather shows 'we're getting soft’ but a chorus of teachers and political rivals from both sides of the aisle quickly rebuked those comments: https://t.co/OiglXzwNcx #KYGov— Philmonger (@phillipmbailey) January 30, 2019 This WDRB transcript (below) put Bevin's comment in better context but the audio reveals that Bevin is
Proofreaders? We don't need no stinkin' proofreaders! Nor do most American newspapers. Two more editors were among the newly RIF'd at The Courier-Journal in Gannett's slash-and-burn strategy. A few weeks ago, a Courier-Journal employee told me that the scant few remaining employees were shuddering at the prospect of a hedge fund takeover of CJ parent company Gannett.

Other media outlets also sent the Grim Reaper through employee break rooms. Even the snarky HuffPo kids took a hit. The Courier-Journal losses were light this time but it could be just a preview of more consolidation

Henry Sadlo and I have been best friends since childhood when we were next door neighbors. Today, thousands know Dr. Sadlo as a respected cardiologist and all-around good soul. For Heart Health Month, I invited him to my radio and TV shows to give simple heart maintenance guidance and to talk about the coronary calcium scans that are giving new clarity to heart health. Thanks also to Regan Judd and Dr. Garth Beache for talking about challenges and remedies for heart issues. Later that day, Henry and I had a throughly personal radio conversation about our lives and heart health guidelines about exercise, eating, alcohol consumption, and signs of troubles. Happy Heart Month! Keep your ticker
