The KBA extends our condolences to the family of Pamela Todd May, wife of legendary broadcaster, Walter E. May. She will be missed by many members of the local and the broadcast community, including her friends within the KBA.
“She was a dear friend and her many contributions to the Commonwealth will be greatly missed.” – Henry G. Lackey
Congratulations to Kristin Cantrell, featured in the May 4, 2017 edition of the Small Market Radio Newsletter. Kristin’s vast history and knowledge of the field started as a young child working side by side with her father traveling to remotes and doing voice over spots. Kristin also serves on the KBA Board of Directors. In addition to owning and operating over 31 stations, she is very active in her community. In July, she will take the helm as the incoming President of the Rotary Club. In 2018, she will be President of the local Chamber of Commerce.
