The Kentucky Press Association’s News Content Service, which shares stories across dozens of newspapers, is starting a pilot program to supply the state’s public radio stations. WEKU at Eastern Kentucky University and WNKU at Northern Kentucky University have signed on. “It’s a way for us to extend the really great work that journalists are already doing around the state,” Roger Duvall, g.m. at WEKU, told the Herald-Leader in Lexington. Greer added that “we know there’s interest” in the project among the other five public radio stations in Kentucky. So far, 23 of the 62 newspapers contributing their reporting to the News Content Service have agreed to allow pubradio stations to use their work, Greer said.
