Remembering: Gatewood Galbraith

2012-01-05 - 101 E. Main Street, Campbellsville, KY - Photo by Larry Smith.

"He was my great friend," Larry Smith, Operations manager for the Big Dawg, 99.9FM radio, writes. "He was one of a kind. From a newsman's standpoint, interviews didn't get any better. He was iconoclastic. He wasn't afraid to challenge conventional beliefs. He had the integrity to speak his mind regardless of political consequences - a trait we all wish other politicians would share. To Gatewood, till we meet again, I'll miss you, old friend." - LARRY. The photo above was taken during the 2010 gubernatorial campaign.
