Memorial Service held for former Kentucky First Lady Phyllis George
KET broadcasted the memorial service for former Kentucky first lady Phyllis George on Monday.
George died May 14 of complications from a rare blood disorder. She was one of the first women to have a prominent role in televised sports when she was hired by CBS Sports in the 1970s.
George married John Y. Brown Jr. in 1979, and served as Kentucky's first lady after Brown's successful run for governor later that year.
