FRANKFORT, KY (AP) -- Former U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler has a new job some five months after losing his congressional seat in last fall's general election.

Chandler was named Friday as executive director of the non-profit Kentucky Humanities Council, which works to bring history, heritage and arts programs to communities across the state. He starts July 1.

Chandler, an attorney, will join the Council after 21 years in Kentucky politics, having served as state auditor, attorney general and congressman.

He will replace Virginia G. Carter who has been head of the Humanities Council since 1989.
