89.3 WFPL News Director Gabe Bullard welcomed Colston as an essential addition to the newsroom and its service to communities throughout Kentucky. "In a time when news organizations are contracting, Kentucky Public Radio is doubling-down on our dedication to hard-hitting, in-depth coverage of state government, and Kenny's knowledge of politics and of Frankfort will be a great asset to us. We're very happy to have him on board."
