The new season of Idaho Reports begins on Friday with a 2020 legislative preview. When you tune in, you’ll notice some changes.
First, I’m going to be on maternity leave for most of this season, starting next week (or sooner, if this baby has other plans). Gemma Gaudette, host of Idaho Matters on Boise State Public Radio, will fill in for me on the anchor desk until I come back in mid-March. Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News and Betsy Russell of the Idaho Press will do one-on-one interviews with the policymakers and stakeholders at the statehouse. While I’m gone, the show will be half an hour, but will still feature the interviews and analysis you’ve come to expect from Idaho Reports.
Behind the scenes, associate producer Devon Downey will take over producing the show. University of Idaho student Logan Finney is interning for us for the session.
And for the first couple of Friday night shows, Idaho Reports will air at 8:30 pm before moving back to our regular 8 pm airtime in mid-January. As always, you can catch us online at your convenience at idahoptv.org.
