IN THE COMMUNITY. FOR THE COMMUNITY. KET FORUMS Disrupting the Opioid Epidemic: A KET Forum, which won a 2019 Ohio Valley Chapter Regional Emmy Award, brought together leading experts to discuss advances in treating addiction. On Pathways for Tomorrow’s Workforce: A KET Forum, education and workforce leaders discussed programs for preparing Kentucky students for success. School Safety: A KET Forum brought together lawmakers, educators and students to discuss new school safety legislation. And on Early Learning: A KET Forum, lawmakers, educators and advocates discussed what it means to prepare a young child to succeed.

THE KET STORY This program explores KET’s beginnings and 50 years of service as Kentucky’s only statewide educational broadcasting network. In the 1950s and ‘60s, KET founder O. Leonard Press saw the potential of television – a new technology – to provide equitable access to high-quality instruction in schools throughout Kentucky. The production explores KET’s history and its commitment to education and Kentucky-focused programming throughout its five decades of public service.

BUILDING HOPE: THE DON AND MIRA BALL STORY Don and Mira Ball have had a profound impact on Central Kentucky. Through their business Ball Homes, they’ve established residential neighborhoods in Lexington and beyond, and their success allowed them to pursue philanthropic interests centered on helping people in the community. This program offers a look back at the incredible life that Mira and Don, who passed away in March 2018, shared and how their devotion to charitable giving and community service has made a positive difference in Kentucky.

HEALTH In addition to continued work around the Inside Opioid Addiction Initiative, KET covered a variety of topics on the weekly Kentucky Health. KET also launched a Youth Mental Health Initiative, anchored by the six-part series You Are Not Alone, a town hall-style conversation with experts and professionals to discuss Kentucky’s increase in youth suicide rates. The series was funded in part by a grant from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky and Project AWARE.

PUBLIC AFFAIRS Kentuckians count on KET’s public affairs programming to gain a greater understanding of the issues facing our state and the nation. Kentucky Tonight, Comment on Kentucky and Connections with Renee Shaw delivered weekly insight and analysis, while live legislative coverage and nightly recaps provided unparalleled access to the legislative process.

ARTS & CULTURE Robert Penn Warren: A Vision explored the life and career of Kentucky’s acclaimed writer of the 1946 novel All the King’s Men. The documentary traces Warren’s family life and his incredible career. Great Conversations, recorded at the University of Louisville Kentucky Author Forum, featured several notable interviews, including Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin. In addition, KET continued to showcase Kentucky’s history, heritage and vibrant arts scene on Kentucky Life.
