Public can join Wyoming PBS conversation with Gov Mead
— January 25, 2014
(Press release) — For over a decade, Wyoming PBS has been conducting in-depth interviews with Wyoming governors. This year, Wyoming PBS travels to the Governor’s Mansion in Cheyenne for an intimate conversation with Governor Matt Mead. “Wyoming Perspectives: One on One with the Governor,” a live call-in program hosted by Geoff O’Gara, airs on Wyoming PBS Thursday, January 30 at 7 p.m.
Viewers can join in the conversation by emailing questions to [email protected], tweeting them using the hashtag #WyomingPBSgov, or calling them in during the live program to 800-495-9788. Similar questions may be blended, and O’Gara will ask follow-up questions to get the fullest answers possible. Questioners will be identified only by first name and town of origin.
“It’s a great opportunity to visit with the Governor in his home,” said O’Gara. “Viewers are able to get unrehearsed answers to the questions they’ve been wanting to ask.”
“This one-hour interview is the rare exception to the thirty-second sound bite or the short article in the newspaper that has been edited,” said Wyoming PBS General Manager Ruby Calvert. “It allows Governor Mead time to really explain his vision for Wyoming and his rationale for policies and decisions. But more than that – it provides access to our Governor to everyone in Wyoming – and it is an important part of the public service mission of Wyoming PBS.”
