KET helping Kentuckians get through this crisis

KET is a vital part of Team Kentucky as Kentuckians cope with the COVID 19 public health crisis.

KET is providing informational and educational resources to help Kentuckians of all ages continue to learn and stay fully informed.

With the urgent need for at-home learning resources for students and teachers, KET developed learn-at-home, free high quality educational resources for students of all ages. This content is available at

KET now broadcasts weekly educational programs throughout the network's 16 transmitters located throughout the state and available for students without computer or internet access.

For Kentucky's younger learners, KET PBS Kids Channel, available 24-7 --always free and online -- provides programs from the No. 1 most trusted network for children's content. In addition there are fun learning games and activities for preschoolers.

And for adult learners, KET is providing free access to Fast Forward, ​its high school equivalency study system and Work Place Essential Skills professional preparation skills at, to help Kentuckians get ready for work or college.

As Kentucky's only statewide media, KET is delivering Gov. Beshear's daily press conferences, special reports on the impact of COVID 19, and timely reports that keep Kentuckians informed.

Thank you KET for helping Kentuckians, young and old, cope with the COVID 19 public health crisis.

Letters to the Editor are submissions from community members to our editor. We run as many as we can every week, per space and time restrictions, as long as they meet some basic criteria. They can't be libelous or incite violence. Letters can be 300 words long, and can be emailed to or mailed to 380 Big Hill Ave., Richmond, KY 40475. Please submit your name, address and a phone number. Only your name and hometown will be printed.

Guest Op-Eds are submissions from community members that exceed 300 words, but are allowed to run because of the perspective they provide, the expertise of the author or the complexity of the subject. This involves a communication between the author and the editor. It's more difficult to run many op-eds because of space constraints.

Editorials are voted on by members of The Register editorial board and are most often written by the editor. They reflect the views of the editorial board, not every Register employee.
