Henry Lackey's Travels 
Last week Henry traveled to member stations in Tennessee and Kentucky. Throughout his travels, he networked and met many folks including:

Thunderbolt Radio in Martin, Tennessee

Katie Gambill, Five Star Media

The purpose of his visits is to talk with you for about 30 minutes and get your feedback on how we can better serve you, our KBA members. If you have some time in your busy schedule to meet with him that would be great! Please contact Karen Mucci at  karen@kba.org to schedule a visit.
