I am thrilled to be bringing my original half-hour program Jean West's Medical Digest to WAVE 3 beginning in February!
I convinced my bosses here at WAVE to allow me to step down from Sunrise to resume production of the area's first and only local program solely devoted to medical, wellness, science and community health equity issues. We'll be working closely with Kentucky's largest healthcare system KentuckyOne, Norton Healthcare and other centers around the country to bring you information on topics outside the news headlines that can impact your quality of life and your health.
Lauren Jones steps into the Sunrise chair beginning this week, and she is awesome. You will love her genuine, smart and affable presence as a new part of the Sunrise family with John, Chris and Christie.
Be sure to wake up with the area's smartest, most capable morning team, and then watch for Jean West's Medical Digest starting February 2 and every Saturday at 7 p.m. You'll hear much more about the show that comes to you from the Kentucky Science Center in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, send your segment ideas for Jean West's Medical Digest directly to me at email@example.com.
