TONIGHT on Mountain Talk: Eastern Ky.’s Economic Future
Tune in on Wednesday April 10 at 6 PM to hear a Mountain Talk conversation about the economic future of Eastern Kentucky. On this show we’ll be hearing from local leaders working to generate new jobs and new opportunities for our region, as well as from special guests from across the nation. Community development leaders from the Pacific Northwest and the New England fishing industry will be calling in to discuss the work happening in these areas towards economic transition.
This show is happening just over a week before Appalachia’s Bright Future Conference (April 19-21), a three-day gathering in Harlan that will feature information on the changing economy, lessons from other regions that have gone through transition, and examples of entrepreneurs and communities working for the future. For more information on the event, visit the conference website.
We hope you’ll join us for a lively conversation about the opportunities and challenges we face in our state and region as folks work together to build the next economy here in eastern Kentucky. The program will be heard at 88.7 FM on your radio dial or streaming online at wmmt.org/listen.Tags:
