Listen to "Irvin S. Cobb: Back Home" A WKMS News Documentary
Irvin S. Cobb: Back Home is the latest entry in WKMS' award-winning series of documentaries that tell the stories of our Four Rivers region. It originally aired March 30th, 2014, marking the 70th anniversary of the passing of one of western Kentucky's most famous native sons.
His name, along with that of U.S. Vice President Alben W. Barkley, is ubiquitous throughout the region they both called home. However, not many people today are aware of his remarkable career and his achievements in journalism, literature, the movies, and on radio.
This documentary looks at his life and his legacy, and finds that both travel in unique and unexpected directions.
