LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - On the latest episode of Kentucky Newsmakers, WKYT’s Bill Bryant talks with State Auditor Mike Harmon and Peter Baniak, the editor and publisher of the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Harmon’s team is concerned that Kentucky doesn’t know exactly how much it owes for unemployment benefits and it comes at a time the legislature is about to put together a state budget. We’ll talk about that and a couple of other topics with Harmon, a Republican from Danville and whose slogan has been ‘follow the data.”

Baniak joins Bill for a look back at the unusual year of 2020 and to discuss what could be next for Kentucky and for journalism from the paper that recently left its landmark downtown location.

We’ll also share some clips of Amber Philpot’s interview this week with Governor Andy Beshear and First Lady Britainy Beshear.
