governor's race

In the midst of our efforts to find the funds to replace our transmitter for 90.9 in Hazard, we have a situation in Pineville.  The transmitter for 90.1 WEKP went off the air, possibly during a storm last week and remains off the air today.

Our engineers traveled to the site on Friday and are working with the manufacturer to diagnose and repair the problem keeping it off the air.

Comer Announces Bid for Governor

FANCY FARM, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer has announced his candidacy for governor in 2015.

The former state lawmaker used the stage at Kentucky's premier political event to say he wants to lead the state after running the Agriculture Department. His announcement came Saturday at the Fancy Farm picnic in western Kentucky. 

With the fall election 20 weeks away, the two major gubernatorial slates in Kentucky are beating the bushes for campaign dollars.  So far, Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear and his running mate, Jerry Abramson, are out-raising Republican Senate President David Williams and his running mate Richie Farmer, but both campaigns are loading up for the fall campaign.

Gov. Steve Beshear's campaign says the list of Republicans backing the Kentucky Democrat's re-election bid this fall is growing.  But the man Beshear faces this fall says there are many reasons why some Republicans would be donating to a sitting governor's re-election campaign. On the day before Kentucky Republicans held their post-primary unity rally at GOP headquarters in Frankfort, Gov. Beshear's campaign released the names of 70 Republicans backing his re-election bid. Among the names was former lieutenant governor Steve Pence.
