WLEX-18’s Nancy Cox, 1992

Posted on March 29, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Nancy Cox, after she was hired to anchor WLEX-18’s Saturday morning newscast, June 23, 1992. The then-24-year-old Cox was a producer/reporter for WKYT-TV (Channel 27), WLEX’s top rival. A Campbellsville native and 1990 Miss Kentucky winner, she has been with WLEX ever since. In Jan. 1994 she joined Tom Kenny as anchor of the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts and almost three years later, the pair were married in a small ceremony at Lexington’s Bodley-Bullock House. Some viewers, once they learned of the pair’s wedding plans, told Kenny and Cox that they suspected it all along, because of the pair’s ease with each other. Kenny now delivers the news on WTVQ-36 while Cox still anchors at WLEX. However Cox, who has won four Emmy Awards for anchoring and reporting, will undergo major back surgery in April and be off the air for an extended time. Photo by Charles Bertram | staff
