Ever Wanted to be On Air on Television? Now is Your Chance


If you are a long time fan of KSR, you know we like to do things differently. I am a big believer in the fact that there are lots of talented people out there with the ability to do things in the world of media, but it doesn’t happen because of a lack of opportunity. With that in mind, we are announcing the “Hey Kentucky” Co-Host Search. Here is the deal…as part of my new TV show beginning this fall on WLEX, I will be doing a daily debate with a rotating group of co-hosts that will be from all different walks of life. Some of these co-hosts are folks you know…Tony Vanetti and Mary Jo Perino for instance will be two of them. But we also want to get a diverse group of people from outside the world of traditional media. The reason why is simple…I found literally ever writer on KSR without going through traditional channels and it has been successful…so why not try the same for television.

So this is your chance. If you are interested in a career in television or simply would like the opportunity to do something fun on the side, here is your chance to give it a shot. All you have to do is send us a 3-5 minute clip of you debating issues in sports, news, politics or whatever to the “Hey Kentucky” Facebook page. Send it via the message there and if we think there is potential, you may get called in for a try out that we could air on the show. Our hope is to find a number of potential co-hosts this way and create new on-air talent going forward. It is that simple.

So if this is something that intrigues you, do it. IF you know someone you think would be good, let them know. It is worth a shot and you have nothing to lose. Like the Facebook Page below (do this either way so you can keep up with the show) and submit your video by FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 2. It is that easy. I am very confident we will find on-air talent via this route. Don’t wish it were you or someone you know. Give it a shot and good luck!

      And the silhouette used for the mystery co-host is not gender or ethnic neutral, it’s clearly another white guy in a suit.
