KET is hosting a virtual “TeleFund” to raise funds to support public television in Lexington and throughout Kentucky. Hundreds of LMS members, over the last 35 years, have volunteered to answer phones in the KET studio during their live Telethon. This is not possible this year due to the pandemic. Instead, we can support KET by going to the link above and donate.
Dr. James Borders, our LMS President, was recently interviewed by KET about the Lexington Medical Society’s decades long support for public television in our community. Dr. Borders’ interview will be featured during Ken Burns’ County Music which will air on Thursday, March 4th at 8:00pm on KET.
