1490 WOMI To Air Gubernatorial Debate Tuesday Oct. 11
All three Kentucky gubernatorial candidates have agreed to participate in a Kentucky Broadcasters Association sponsored debate October 11, 2011 during the association’s annual conference in Richmond, Ky. The event will be heard live on 1490 WOMI and online at www.1490womi.com. Broadcast time is 6 -7 p.m.
Keith Casebolt, KBA chairman said, “This is a major coup for our organization considering the candidates will apparently be making limited appearances together.” The one hour debate will be broadcast live on over 140 KBA member radio and television stations.
Candidates Gov. Steve Beshear, Gatewood Galbraith and Senator David Williams will be questioned by news reporters from around the state who will ask questions pertinent to their region. “We believe this will be the best opportunity for the voters of Kentucky to hear firsthand the responses and positions each candidate has on issues that affect Kentuckians.” Casebolt added.
The KBA has partnered with the Kentucky League of Women of Voters as sponsors of the debate.
