Reporters' Roundtable

The Kentucky General Assembly wrapped up this past week, and not only were there overrides to the Governor’s vetoes, but the new Republican super-majority successfully passed quite a bit of new legislation in what seems to be record time.


On this week’s Eastern Standard, our panel of reporters joins us for a roundtable to discuss all legislative news that occurred in Frankfort this year.

A few weeks ago, we had a panel of reporters gives us a preview of this year’s election.  This week, they’ll be back for a post-election reporter’s roundtable.

After the dust of the 2016 election settles, we will discuss the results with the journalists and get feedback from listeners.

Next month, voters from across the Commonwealth go to the polls to select candidates for the fall gubernatorial election.  Meanwhile, one Kentuckian has launched a campaign for our nation's highest elected office.

In other news, well....we'll ask our reporters around the table for what's on their minds.

Our guests this week:  Stu Johnson WEKU Reporter; Sam Youngman, political reporter with the Lexington Herald Leader; Ryland Baron, KPRN's State Capitol Bureau Chief.
