WLEX-18 evening anchors, 1993

Posted on January 5, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

WLEX-18 evening anchors Tom Kenny and Mindy Shannon, shortly before Kenny, then 31, was promoted from the morning news beginning Jan. 4, 1993. He was replacing the demoted Jim Bailey. Kenny would be the fourth anchor to sit with Shannon since 1981 — following Bailey, Bob Hale and Mike Barry — at WLEX, which had been No. 2 in the ratings all during that time. Shannon left WLEX in August 1993 to become Gov. Brereton Jones’ press secretary. She currently lives in Lexington. Kenny now co-anchors the WTVQ-36 News at 5, 6 and 11 p.m. Click here to see an image from our archive of WLEX broadcasters later in 1993, and here to see Lexington sportscasters from 1981 and 1982, including WLEX’s Alan Cutler.
