POV | WDRB Makes Senate Debate Available Statewide (5/22/14)

Posted: Updated:
I've stated publicly in the past that it’s WDRB’s intention – and that of every one of our employees – to earn the reputation of being a great television station.

Not just good, but great.

While we believe no TV station can be considered great unless it steps forward and becomes a vital part of its community's political process, it wouldn't serve the community well to do that in a selfish manner. So in that spirit, we've made the offer to host and televise all debates that are agreed upon between Kentucky’s Senatorial candidates Mitch McConnell and Alison Lundergan Grimes, and also make them available to all other radio and TV stations – public and private -- across Kentucky and in Cincinnati.

I'm pleased to announce that Senator McConnell has already accepted our offer, and we’ve already received commitments from 31 other TV and radio stations to carry our telecasts. We're hopeful that Ms. Grimes will soon complete the picture and preparations can get underway.

I’m Bill Lamb, and that’s my Point of View.
