KET is unveiling a new program that’s all about Louisville!
Inside Louisville, hosted by Kelsey Starks, features conversations with Louisville’s biggest newsmakers and personalities, celebrating the people, places and traditions that make the River City such a vibrant and diverse community. The half-hour weekly program also features stories that explore Kentucky’s largest city, spotlighting its neighborhoods, nightlife and noteworthy attractions.
Guests on initial episodes include Teddy Abrams, music director of the Louisville Orchestra; Darnell ‘SuperChef’ Ferguson of the Food Network; Dr. Marty Pollio, superintendent of Jefferson County Public Schools; and chef Ed Lee.
“We’re thrilled to offer viewers across Kentucky a new way to explore Louisville and meet the people who bring the city to life,” said Shae Hopkins, KET’s executive director and CEO. “As Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville plays a pivotal role in the Commonwealth, and we look forward to showcasing everything that makes it special.”
Starks, an Owensboro native, is a KET producer widely known for her work as host of the hit educational online program News Quiz, viewed by tens of thousands of students each week. A graduate of the University of Kentucky and Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, Starks previously served as anchor of Good Morning Kentuckiana on WHAS (ABC) in Louisville.
“Louisville has been my and my family’s home for more than a decade,” Starks said. “I’m delighted to be hosting a new KET production that gives viewers a chance to get to know some of the city’s most interesting people and also highlight what makes Louisville such a great place to live.”
