KET is called a state treasure
As fall begins with leaves turning vibrant shades of red, orange and yellow, weekend football games and cooler evenings, I am reminded that we are entering a new season of enriching programming and robust services offered through Kentucky Educational Television (KET).
Committed to education, KET continues its rich traditon of bringing trusted, world-class digital learning to Kentucky classrooms. In addition, KET provides distance learning courses in physics, Latin, German, and soon Chinese, early childhood resources and training, GED preparation courses and more serving all ages.
Accessible to public schools and classrooms across the state, KET provides the most comprehensive, independent coverage of the candidates and election results. In addition, KET brings into our homes the best arts and performance programs from around the world.
KET depends on a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help bring excellent, high quality programming to Kentucky. If you value KET, I encourage you to get involved. In fact, 170 million Americans count on public broadcasting each month. Join www.170millionAmericans.org to receive information about public broadcasting and its funding. Your voice does matter.
KET is a state treasure that must be protected And supported. I hope you will join me in support of KET’s educational mission and public service to all Kentuckians.
