Republicans in Minnesota Senate are getting their own weekly radio show.
The GOP caucus announced today that Sen. Mike Parry, R-Waseca, will host the program Inside the Senate. It will air Friday mornings at 10:00 a.m. on KOWZ-AM in Owatonna.
“I look forward to this opportunity to communicate with the public through a weekly radio program, Parry said in a news release. “With massive budget and jobs deficits, it’s more important now than ever that we create a constructive dialogue with people as we seek the best solutions to move Minnesota forward. Inside the Senate gives people with busy lives and busy schedules a consistent, focused update on the news of the Legislature.”
The inaugural show tomorrow will include Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch, R-Buffalo, and Assistant Majority Leader David Hann, R-Eden Prairie, as guests.
Gov. Mark Dayton is considering proposals from a handful of stations that want to host his weekly radio show. No contract has been announced. Dayton plans to carry on a radio-show tradition started by Gov. Jesse Ventura and continued by Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
