Kentucky Sports Radio's Matt Jones To Host Fancy Farm Political Speaking


Kentucky Sports Radio host Matt Jones will host the political speaking at Fancy Farm this year.

Jones will introduce the candidates and make remarks as the emcee of the 135th annual St. Jerome Catholic Church picnic that has become the premiere political event in the state. The picnic is known more for the crowd than the speeches, as supporters holler and heckle in equal measure throughout the event.

The highlight of this year's event will be speeches from the Democratic and Republican nominees for governor, who are both vying to succeed term-limited Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear.

Jones, whose Kentucky Sports Radio show is broadcast on more than 30 stations statewide, called it a tremendous honor. He said he hopes to bring the uniqueness of Fancy Farm to a new audience.
