Airing live on Thursdays from 11 AM to Noon, Eastern Standard discusses topics and concerns of the people of Central and Southeastern Kentucky
Host Tom Martin, a network radio news veteran and Lexington Herald-Leader columnist, strives for compelling, enriching discussions with guests and callers from the listening region.
Topics are often introduced and discussion stimulated by the program’s reporting partner, the Ohio Valley ReSource. OVR is a regional journalism collaborative reporting on economic and social change in Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia. With support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, seven public media outlets across the three states have partnered to form the ReSource in order to strengthen news coverage of the area’s most important issues.
In addition to the resources of Eastern Kentucky University, Eastern Standard content partners include the Lexington Herald-Leader and Transylvania University.
