What I like most about Lexington: It’s a great place to raise a family.
My most interesting assignment: Covering the last two NCAA Basketball Championships with UK
After more than five years of bouncing around from small town to small town (West Kentucky, West Texas, and West Virginia), Kyle is excited to finally be in place he and his wife, Amanda, can call home -- and it's not far from his "hometown," either.
Kyle grew up in the northern Kentucky area and his goal since the start of his career was to get closer to home... an hour away isn't bad!
On top of that, he gets to cover the Wildcats! Although his dream of being able to dunk like Jeff Sheppard has yet to happen (still holding out hope), being a Sports Reporter, especially in Lexington, is truly a dream come true and a blessing he'll be forever grateful for.
Of course, Kyle looks forward to covering everything UK and The Kentucky Derby, but that's only a portion of what Lexington has to offer. If you have a story idea, whether it be in the Little Leagues or Senior Leagues, don't hesitate to let him know!
Keith is from Richmond, Ky., and attended Madison Central High School, home of the 2013 high school basketball champion Indians, and later Morehead State University.
He started his career in Eastern Kentucky at WYMT where the focus was on high school sports and the University of Kentucky. During his first three year stint at LEX 18, Keith helped cover the 1998 UK National Championship in San Antonio.
He then went to Louisville to work for WLKY for 13 years. He had the chance to cover UK, Louisville and Indiana. Seeing all three compete in the Final Four where the Wildcats won it all in 2012 and UofL in 2013. He also covered every Kentucky Derby during that stretch, a PGA, Senior PGA and Ryder Cup at Valhalla and three Little League World Series.
Keith returned to LEX 18 in May of 2013, just in time to help with coverage of the Kentucky Derby won by Orb.
He is married to Kristie and has three boys, the oldest of which attends the University of Kentucky.
