I want to apologize — publicly, on this blog — to John in Taylorsville, Kentucky.
Last week, I asked you for questions I might ask the gubernatorial candidates on our final KET candidate program Monday night. Before the program and during the broadcast, we received many good and important questions. You wanted to know where Governor Beshear, Senator Williams, and Gatewood Galbraith stood on mountain-top removal, higher education, and the state budget.
John had an excellent question on growing hemp as a cash crop for farmers. I told him I would ask the question — I didn’t.
In the heat of the battle on the candidate program, John’s question, along with a number of other well-thought inquiries, was pushed to the bottom of the question pile and I failed to get it on the air.
Again, to John and all of you who took the time to phone, Tweet, email, or Facebook a question in — thanks so much for making our candidate programs more relevant and meaningful to the audience and to the hosts. I hope you’re not too disappointed.
Don’t forget: We have two more election-related programs: Kentucky Tonight on Monday will feature the party chairs and our political analysts discussing what might happen on election day— our election-night coverage begins at 7/6 CT. I hope you’ll be with us the entire evening.
