PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Highlighting the talent in the mountains.
Leaders in Eastern Kentucky are hoping to create a new television channel called "Country Music Highway 23."
At the SOAR Summit, they presented their idea to many in the community.
The Mayor of Prestonsburg, Les Stapleton, said by creating this channel, he hopes to put people back to work and teach them new skills.
"We're going be working with Big Sandy to teach people how to use cameras, how to be audio, how to be technical. Maybe even be a DJ or VJ or reporter," said Stapleton.
Stapleton says they are working to get the channel up and running by spring.
