When I made the decision a few weeks ago to not run for Congress, a number of things were part of the final decision. The factors ranged from timing to the political climate, but it also included the desire to continue to improve KSR in 2016 and take it to another level. I think you will see in the early months of 2016, a renewed emphasis on keeping this site at the top level and adding new features to take KSR into areas. Along those lines, we are expanding the KSR Podcasts, starting with a twice-weekly podcast that I will be hosting. Because creativity is not my top strong suit, I am naming the new podcast “The Matt Jones Podcast”, allowing the extra time spent on naming to be used on content. It will basically be a chance for me to interview guests in a longer form about a variety of topics, ranging from UK sports, pro sports, pop culture, politics or Kentucky issues as a whole. Its a chance in a different form than the radio show to get into a variety of issues that we don’t touch on a lot on the show and hear from people that normally we don’t have time to get to. I think people will really enjoy it and it should help give readers/listeners more content. In addition, we will be starting a UK Basketball podcast in the vein of the UK Football one, giving listeners a chance to get more insight on the team during the year.
With that in mind, we want to give people a chance to be a part of the show. We are currently adding sponsors for our podcasts and the site as a whole heading into 2016. As anyone who has been a part of KSR knows, sponsors who have been part of the radio show have almost universal success and we expect the same to be true on the Podcast. If you are interested, please email me before Christmas at [email protected] and we can discuss how to make it happen.
Thanks for everyone’s support and we look forward to a BIG 2016 around these parts.
