  A west Kentucky television station manager told his employees they need his permission before getting tested for coronavirus, after an employee at the station tested positive for infection by the virus. Some employees of the station’s parent company, Paxton Media Group, say that policy discourages them from getting a test. Health and legal experts say the station policy is problematic, putting employees of the station and the public at large at risk for spreading the virus.

NPR on Thursday announced John Lansing will be their next President and CEO and he began his career at a west Kentucky TV station.

  Local NBC affiliate WPSD-TV is apologizing Monday for outages that occurred during last night's Super Bowl.  The station’s over-the-air signal was interrupted multiple times during the game’s third quarter due to a seemingly complicated power issue at the station’s transmission site. WPSD explained the details of an investigation into the outage in a press release:

St. Paul Lutheran Paducah Pastor Corey Aker is spreading the word about the 57th Lion's Club/WPSD Telethon, raising dollars for centers working with children and adults with developmental disabilities in our region. Kate Lochte speaks with Aker on Sounds Good about this weekend's event at the Carson Center. The beneficiaries are regional health centers.
