WFLP News, Louisville’s NPR news station, took a look at How A Sports Radio Show Became A Must Stop For Kentucky Politics.
Ashley Lopez, a political reporter for WFLP, spoke to Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond about KSR’s occasional dabble into the political world.
Matt told her, “I’m able to ask things that others can’t. I am able to sort of pull the curtain back in a way that other people won’t or feel like they can’t.”
Yesterday, KSR hosted its Kentucky gubernatorial debate, featuring the three main candidates: Matt Bevin (R), Jack Conway (D) and Drew Curtis (I). We’ve also seen Matt host the Fancy Farm Picnic, the Republican gubernatorial debate and a Senate debate, among many other impactful political interviews.
He and Ryan believe it has been great for the show.
