Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 15, 2020) – As the fundraising arm of the University of Kentucky, the Office of Philanthropy is charged with furthering the university’s mission and vision. The philanthropy staff works with faculty, students, programs, colleges and administration to identify the university’s top priorities. Then, it connects the university to the people, corporations and foundations who can make their dreams a reality.

In the fall of 1969, Muhlenberg County native Mike Richey enrolled at the University of Kentucky in Lexington as a college freshman. More than 51 years later, the University’s Vice President for Philanthropy and Chief Philanthropy Officer’s love for UK burns brighter than ever.

Recently, Richey joined Carl Nathe for a ‘Behind the Blue’ podcast interview to talk about the school’s ongoing ‘Kentucky Can’ efforts, the 21st Century Campaign for the University of Kentucky and more.

"Behind the Blue" is available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and Spotify. Become a subscriber to receive new episodes of “Behind the Blue” each week. UK’s latest medical breakthroughs, research, artists and writers will be featured, along with the most important news impacting the university.
