                                        Perkey’s People
                                        Sharon Potter, executive producer of KentuckyShow!, was featured on the
                                        new show, “Perkey’s People.” The show, hosted by veteran television and
radio personality Wayne Perkey, weaves together a vignette of stories about interesting people in the Louisville
area. “Perkey’s People” is about the folks who make Kentuckiana the best place in America to live,” Perkey said.
“Every person has a remarkable story to tell.” Perkey was intrigued by the story of how Potter, a New Orleans
native, came to be the driving force behind KentuckyShow! His interview reveals the details of that story and Ms.
Potter’s passion for Kentucky. KentuckyShow! , narrated by Ashley Judd, is a thirty-minute, multimedia experience
that highlights Kentucky’s fascinating people, places and spirit. KentuckyShow! runs in its own state-of-the-art
theater in the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts.
Perkey’s People airs Monday at 10 pm on WKYI-TV Channel 24, which may be viewed on Insight Cable Channel
