Rocking the Red with Rachel Platt; Mimi Hwang’s Family Business


It’s a busy week for the Rusty Satellite Show. First, I went to the set of WHAS-TV’s Great Day Live to talk with beloved anchor Rachel Platt. I’ve known Rachel for years, and was pleased to hear her story about how she came to be a local supporter of the American Heart Association.

For years, I’ve been seeing those Hwang’s Martial Arts busses and passing by their storefronts, so I decided to see what they’re doing right. Mimi Hwang runs the family business with her parents, and they provide a great resource for parents throughout Jefferson County with after-school programs. Mimi was born in Korea and started training in the martial arts at age 3 when her family moved to the U.S. I was intimidated by her black belt.

In the news, I was saddened that our community lost two great men — Jim King and Houston Jones. Teen runaways from Grayson County have captured the news media’s attention, and the Ark Park suffered another setback. A new report gives Kentucky straight Fs for its work in stopping smoking. Plus, there’s football and a lot of movies to see. All in another episode of the Rusty Satellite Show.

And welcome our new sponsor — Loui Loui’s Authentic Detroit Style Pizza. Come on out to Jeffersontown and tell ’em Rusty sent you.
