The dangerous health effects of second-hand smoke played a key role in making Lexington a smoke-free community.

Continuing our look back at ten years of Lexington's No Smoking Ordinance:

Penny Warren is a Lexington attorney and a former smoker.  She says the ordinance has made a major difference in her life.  She talks about kicking the habit and smoke free policies with local cardiologist, Dr. Thomas Whayne.

Special thanks to the Kentucky Center for Smoke Free Policy at kcsp.uky.edu for sharing the audio from its grant-funded oral history project.

Bitten by the radio bug as a teenager, Alan Lytle got his start start more than 30 years ago volunteering in Clermont County, Ohio for WOBO-FM. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Broadcasting from the University of Cincinnati and worked at a variety of radio stations in the Cincinnati market, then made the move to Lexington in the mid-1990s.
