LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The KFC Yum Center is about to celebrate its first anniversary. Arena Authority Chairman Jim Host says, "Almost a year in, I think overall it's been a great success. We don't have a huge loss at the end of the year. We should be in the operational black."
Host also points out that new restaurants and other businesses attracted to downtown by the arena have had a positive economic impact.
As for any problems from the Sherman Minton Bridge closing, Host says most of the arena's events are at different times from peak bridge traffic.
