LFCHD launches Healthy Times radio show on 95.7 FM
Lexington’s newest radio station has two new voices.
Bailey Preston and Kevin Hall host “Healthy Times,” the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department’s new program on WLXL, 95.7 FM, Lexington Community Radio. The station has an emphasis on public safety and “will provide vital emergency broadcasts during severe weather occurrences, community emergencies and other potential/real man-made or natural disasters,” according to its website.
The “Healthy Times” program will allow Preston and Hall to talk directly to Lexington residents about Public Health issues. This will include services and programs offered at the health department, as well as state, regional and national health headlines.
Dr. Rice Leach served as the program’s first guest, covering 40 minutes of his thoughts and views on Lexington’s health and the future role of Public Health in the city.
“Our program will be a conversational interview,” Hall said. “We want LFCHD staff to feel comfortable answering questions, so we’ll be working with them to find out what they want listeners to know. Once we get behind the microphones, it will be a relaxed conversation between 2-3 people, and we’ll be inviting Lexington to listen.”
The program airs at 10 a.m. every other Wednesday on 95.7 FM. For those who missed it the first time, the debut episode will re-air Feb. 24. If you’re interested in being a guest on the show, please contact Preston or Hall to discuss ideas.
