Special Message from KBA President & CEO, Henry Lackey

With the frigid , glacial -like temperatures, we are faced with cars not starting, pipes freezing, furnaces going on the brink and of course those dreaded power outages that effect everything we do. The biggest issue in the broadcasting industry are stations going off the air due to the massively frigid conditions that are blanketing the United States. Did you know that it is warmer in Alaska right now?

If your station has experienced a power outage due to the weather, please do not forget to contact Henry Lackey at the KBA. We hope you do not have to, but in the event of an outage, we would like to hear from you. Please call Henry at (502)848-0426 or via email at henry@kba.org. As always, thank you for all you do for broadcasters in your districts and around the nation. Have a great day! Stay warm!

Kentucky High School Basketball Centennial

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association, along with the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches and the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame, are celebrating 100 years of the sport near and dear to the state of Kentucky; Basketball.

The 2017-2018 basketball season marks the beginning of this “Centennial Celebration”, but planning began in 2015.

On October 17, KHSAA held a press conference to reveal the remainder of their plans for the 2017-2018 season to be “A Season to Remember”.

The Centennial celebration actually began at the 2017 Boys Sweet 16 at Rupp Arena where it tipped-off.

The logo used for the Centennial Celebration above was a contest for students to design and a Calloway County High School senior won.

For further information, visit khsbk100.com, where a full video of the press conference is available as well as 12 PSA’s promoting the Centennial of High School Basketball.

“Across Kentucky” Radio Program Changing Hands

With the airing of “Across Kentucky” for Friday, December 29, Mike Feldhaus will be concluding his regular contract work with Farm Bureau for production of that daily program. As some of you know, Mike officially retired in ’09 but stayed on in a free lance role producing Across Kentucky which he says he enjoyed very much. Mike and his wife Sandy plan to do a little more traveling in the coming months.

Across Kentucky will continue, in the able hands of Alan Watts who some of you know has filled in for Mike on the program from time to time in the last year or so. He’ll do a great job.

Mike says, “I thank all of you in the broadcast industry for your support and encouragement over the years and while I look forward to “kicking back” full time; I know I will miss production of the show and for sure will miss the relationships I had with so many of you. In recent years, for a few of you , I’ve been producing commercial spots, tags, promos and the like, and I will continue to do that and hope to build that list of clientele; so if you have a need in that vein shoot an email my way and we can discuss. Drop me a line anytime at: mikefeldhaus@twc.com.”
