It’s the home of the fastest two minutes in sports, the birthplace of the “Happy Birthday” song, and where Lewis met Clark to plan their trip west. Of course, Louisville is Kentucky’s largest city. But did you know that it’s also the biggest producer of disco balls in the United States? Has a downtown with more cast-iron buildings than anywhere but SoHo? And can claim a founding role in the National Spelling Bee?

Whether you’re a long-time lover of Louisville or just looking to get smitten, you’ll want to check out Louisville Life, KET’s new magazine series on all things Louisville. Hosted by Candyce Clifft, Louisville Life airs Thursday nights at 7:30/6:30 pm CT on KET2 beginning October 5.

Among the questions we’ll answer during our premier season:

  • Why do some people want to Keep Louisville Weird?
  • Who are the Lost Boys of the Sudan, and why have they made their way to Louisville?
  • Under what well-trafficked Louisville expressway and family attraction will you find a cavernous four-million-square-foot storage space that houses vintage cars, boats, and Hollywood films?
  • Why did the restaurateur behind one of New York City’s popular eateries choose Louisville for his next culinary hot spot?

Louisville Life will show you what’s distinctive about Louisville’s neighborhoods; introduce you to talked-about locals, as well as new folks you’ll find unforgettable; and help you plan your next go-see trip or night out on the town. Discover more about the city that forged world champion Muhammad Ali, writer Hunter S. Thompson, and television journalist Diane Sawyer. Tune in to get to know Louisville people and places, to understand the community’s past and get a glimpse of its future. Louisville is the city nearly one-third of Kentuckians call home. Learn why when you tune in to Louisville Life—Thursdays this fall, only on KET.
