I couldn't tell you how long I have tuned in to Newstalk 590 WVLK to listen to "The Lexington Morning News with Jack Pattie." Actually I am mistaken, I have been listening to Jack Pattie for 35 years! On Friday, August 27th WVLK hosted a "Breakfast with Jack Pattie" at the Red Mile to celebrate his 35th Anniversary. Until I was invited to this celebration I hadn't realized just how long I had been tuning in to News Talk 590 during my drive into Lexington. I did, however, realize that Jack Pattie pretty much knows everything that is going on not only in central Kentucky but across the country. From current events to sports and politics, he keeps us up to date.

As you can see from the pictures, the sun was just coming up as listeners, friends and family stopped to congratulate Jack. It was cool that he was broadcasting live during the event! Through all the handshakes, photos and stories he was still bringing us the latest news. He was also accompanied by guests on the show including Ralph Hacker, who we all know is no stranger to the radio waves. A nice touch to the breakfast was the slide show of pictures on the screens that showed Jack through the years. They made it seem like he really does have a life outside of radio!  

Jack, congratulations on 35 great years! Thanks for all you do to keep us informed. It has been a pleasure tuning in to New Talk 590 every morning Monday-Friday.

Of course I had to get my picture taken with the News 590 WVLK vehicle.
