Coming Up Next:
Friday, May 29 at 5:00/4:00 pm CT on KET2
Jay Williams, the U.S. assistant secretary of commerce for economic development and the former mayor of Youngstown, Ohio, talks with Renee about how Youngstown recovered from the decline of the steel industry, and how those lessons can apply to Eastern Kentucky areas distressed by the sharp downturn in coal jobs. The conversation was taped during the SOAR (Shaping Our Appalachian Region) conference on May 11, 2015, in Pikeville.
Connections with Renee Shaw
Connections with Renee Shaw, a KET interview and discussion series, explores the cultures and concerns of Kentucky’s diverse minority communities and celebrates everyday heroes. “Instead of just harping on what’s wrong, we hope Connections will afford us the time to really discuss the issues with the people who are out there making things happen,” says host and co-producer Renee Shaw.
Connections airs each week on KET and KET2:
Fridays at 5:00/4:00 pm CT on KET2
Sundays at 1:30/12:30 pm CT on KET
Additional episodes from the series archives air on the Kentucky Channel each week. Most past programs are also available for viewing online. The series is also available via audio or video podcast.
