E-Rupp-tion in Lexington

05/22/2014 08:04 PM

News out of Lexington today about the latest development in the Rupp Arena project has the Bluegrass buzzing. University of Kentucky President, Eli Capilouto, wrote a strongly worded, three-page letter to the head of the renovation project, the Lexington Center Corporation. In the letter, Capilouto criticized many things, including the organizations plans to procure financing for the original project. Capilouto also suggests moving the arena out of downtown all together.

KSTV’s Thomas Beisner discusses the letter and the possible fate of Rupp Arena with Mark Krebs and Bradley McKee.
