Kentucky Sports Radio to host live tribute show honoring Jared Lorenzen tomorrow at Highlands

Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio is hosting a live radio tribute show to honor Highlands alum (1999), Jared Lorenzen. The former Bluebird, University of Kentucky Wildcat and Super Bowl Champion died at the age of 38 last week.
Lorenzen was a friend of Jones and co-hosts, Ryan Lemond and Drew Franklin and was a repeat guest and co-host of the show.
“We wanted to do something to honor our good friend, Jared, and there was no better place to do a tribute show for him than at his alma mater, Highlands, in Fort Thomas,” said Lemond.
The event will be held at Highlands High School on the balcony overlooking David A. Cecil Memorial Stadium. The event is open to the public, however seating is limited. The show starts at 10:00 a.m. and runs to noon. The public can enter the school via the main entrance starting at 9:30 a.m. Overflow seating will be available in the cafeteria adjacent to the balcony.
You can also video stream the show on Fort Thomas Independent Schools Facebook page and on radio at WLAP.com or on the iHeart Radio app, search “WLAP”.
“We’re happy to host Kentucky Sports Radio at Highlands for their Jared Lorenzen tribute show,” said Dr. Karen Cheser, Superintendent of Fort Thomas Independent Schools. “It’s going to be a great opportunity to hear from friends all across the state and nation about what Jared meant to everyone. For our school and community, that’s especially important. He left an indelible mark in the fabric of our school system.”
Athletic Director, Kevin Nieporte, agreed and said he was excited to invite the public to view the show in person, which overlooks one of the most picturesque football fields in the tri-state.
“I have fielded calls from everywhere in the state about KSR’s tribute show for Jared tomorrow. It’s clear the positive impact he’s had on everyone. We’ll always remember Jared and we’ll always remember KSR for allowing the opportunity to remember the good times we all shared with him.”
Guests on the show will include some of his teammates, coaches and friends.
Jared will be inducted into Highlands’ Athletic Hall of Fame this fall, in his first year of eligibility.
