Spotlighting issues affecting the bottom line in Central Kentucky.

Lane Report

Every January the Lane Report publishes a look-ahead of top business trends to keep our eyes on.  WUKY's Alan Lytle gets some of the highlights of this year's report from executive editor Mark Green in this week's edition of the Business Side.

Business Lexington

It’s the first edition of the Business Side for a brand new year.  WUKY's Alan Lytle talks with Business Lexington editor Tom Wilmes about Kentucky's economic opportunity with the now, federally legal industrial hemp, a new hype video commissioned by a consortium of high-profile Lexington companies, and an effort by a Cynthiana-based company to set a world record in head protection.

Kentucky Center for Economic Policy

Republican Governor Matt Bevin has touted his success in creating jobs and getting companies to invest in our state – while a new report from the left-leaning Kentucky Center for Economic Policy tamps down on that enthusiasm.  WUKY's Alan Lytle and Lane Report executive editor Mark Green attempt to sort out the competing narratives.
