Louisville Life begins new season!

Friday, Dec. 7, 2012

Louisville Life, KET’s series about the events, people and culture that shape the River City, begins its seventh season with two programs that explore the diversity of Louisville and its inhabitants, hosted by Candyce Clifft. Louisville Life premieres Saturday, Dec. 8 at 7/6 pm on KET and Thursday, Dec. 13 at 7:30/6:30 pm on KET2.

In the season premiere, Louisville Life gets to know award-winning filmmaker and Louisville native Jeff Dupre, who began his career working with acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns and is the talent behind PBS’ CircusCarrier, Broadway: The American Musical and the recent Independent Lens special Half The Sky.

The program also visits Guitar Emporium, which has been a fixture in Louisville’s Highlands neighborhood for more than 35 years, selling guitars to not only the locals, but also to such guitar legends such as Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend.

Next, Stacey Yates with the Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau talks about how the organization enhances Louisville’s economy through tourism as a premier destination for conventions, trade shows, corporate meetings, group tours and individual leisure travel.

Also in the season premiere, television reporter Barry Bernson, known for his off-beat stories, discusses his book, Bernson’s Corner: A Reporter’s Notebook, an account of a 47-year career spent in news.
