‘The Porch’ to be featured on KET
In March 12 Issue
By Derek Aaron
News-Register Editor

One of KET's most popular programs, "Kentucky Life" made a stop in Russell Springs last week to film a segment of their show at The Porch restaurant in Russell Springs, according to Connie Miller, the restaurant's manager.

Miller said she was thrilled when she got the call from KET, asking if a crew could come down and film a piece about the restaurant.

KET field producer Brandon Wickey said he learned of The Porch from Gary West's book, "Eating Your Way Across Kentucky: 101 Must Places to Eat."

"It sounded like a great little place in an area of the state we don't visit as often as we'd like," Wickey said.

"We very quickly scheduled a time to come down here and tape a story."

Miller said, surprisingly, her business had not seen much of a decline in business through the economic downturn.

"I was very thankful for that," she said. "People got to eat. This winter was a little slow but it wasn't because of the economy but because of snow."

The segment on The Porch will be featured during the "Today's Special" portion of the half-hour show which features eateries, diners and restaurants from around Kentucky.

Wickey said this segment generally runs between two and three minutes and sometimes as much as five minutes.

"We like to get our host out and talk with the owners or managers to see what makes restaurants special and what the locals like," Wickey said. "In this case we heard a lot about the soups and the salads here so I think that is what Dave is going to have today."

The show's host, Dave Shuffett, joined Wickey on the assignment and said the Emmy-winning news magazine-style program covered people and places of the commonwealth.

Shuffett, who is originally from nearby Greesnburg and a former host of Kentucky Afield, has been the program's host for 11 years and has seen his share of the state.

"We cover the whole state," he said. "Our penetration reaches the entire state and parts of the surrounding states. We are the largest PBS affiliate in America."

Kentucky Life programs are story-based rather than event-driven, profile people from each of Kentucky's distinct regions, highlight Kentucky's history, geographic diversity, and natural beauty and showcase the wide variety of artistic expression of Kentucky's talented citizens, according to their website.

The episode of "Kentucky Life" with the segment on The Porch will air on KET on April 16 at 7 p.m., will repeat on April 17 at 3:30 and on KET2 at 6:30 p.m., also on April 17.
