Today on State of the News

by Laura Ellis on August 19, 2011

Segment A: School is finally in session in Jefferson County, Insight Communications has a new owner and the Louisville Orchestra can move forward with its bankruptcy plan. We’ll talk about these and other Metro stories – including a possibly postponement of Councilwoman Judy Green‘s removal trial, and the strange case of the man charged in an Australian bomb hoax – plus hear from WFPL’s Erica Peterson, who’s in Eastern Kentucky covering the EPA Tour.

Segment B: It’s been just over ten days since the Dow dropped 635 points – the 6th largest absolute point drop in its history. What happened? And what might happen next? We’ll see if David Weidner, the Wall Street columnist for MarketWatch can explain.

Segment C: Google Plus’ policy of deleting anonymous accounts has been unpopular with activists and others. Fast Company‘s Neal Ungerleider will give us an overview of the controversy, then fill us in on a marketing snafu concerning Whole Foods and the company’s attempt at Ramadan-specific marketing.

Finally, we’ll hear sounds from opening day of the Kentucky State Fair.
