British President Eli Capilouto; Kentucky Cabinet of Tourism Sec. Michael Berry

LEXINGTON, KY (WKYT) — In the latest issue of Kentucky Newsmakers, WKYT’s Bill Bryant speaks with University of Kentucky President Eli Kapilouto and Kentucky Tourism Cabinet Secretary Michael Berry.

Capilouto is proposing a $5.6 billion budget for the state’s flagship university. He said the spending plan would expand student access and make a major investment in financial aid, and said it minimizes tuition and fee increases and allows the university to raise rates.

The UK has been around since 1865, but its mission continues to evolve and grow, and Kentuckians from border to border are affected by its achievements in health, education, and agriculture. Capilouto join us to discuss.

Summer travel season is in full swing, and for some places in Kentucky, this is the first normal summer season since before the pandemic. Incredibly high gas prices are forcing many families to rethink long trips and consider vacations and trips closer to home.

In a way, Kentucky has it all: history, natural beauty, festivals, and experiences like the Bourbon Trail and horse farms. But like any other sector, tourism facilities also face labor challenges. Tourism Cabinet Secretary Michael Berry joins us to talk about these issues.
