KBA Conference Wrap-up


The 75th Annual KBA Conference was a tremendous success thanks to you, our members and PEP sponsors.

The brightest and most talented folks in the broadcast industry conducted seminars.

A golf scramble followed by a Monday night reception listening to the sounds of Brandy Neely and featured artist William Michael Morgan at the famous Lost River Cave was a blast!

Tuesday featured the Chairman’s Breakfast with Congressman Brett Guthrie, a luncheon with Head WKU Football Coach Jeff Brohm and a star studded KBA Awards Dinner, chaired by Ed Henson, who has graciously accepted this tough responsibility for several years.

Legends of Kentucky broadcasting were present to make the evening more exciting and to help commemorate 75 years.

Phillips Mitchell Photography of Lexington, KY was the official photographer for the event. Pictures will be available soon.

The KBA congratulates our winners.
