In this latest installment of WUKY's Award Winning history program Saving Stories, Alan Lytle talks with Dr. Doug Boyd, director of the Nunn Center for Oral History about the hours of interviews with Kentucky Education Television founder Len Press.  The former WBKY general manager talks about his first visit to Knott County, Kentucky in 1952; a trip that would not only change the trajectory of his life and career, but also provide the spark of an idea of connectivity later realized through the launching of the statewide public television network now known as KET.
