Gov. Edwards to kick off monthly radio show on Tuesday afternoon
BATON ROUGE - On Tuesday afternoon, Gov. John Bel Edwards is set to launch a monthly call-in radio show called “Ask the Governor” on the Louisiana Radio Network.
The show will air statewide and will be available to all radio stations. Listeners to the show will be able to call in and speak one-on-one with the governor to ask him questions about issues that are important to them, according to the Governor’s Office.
“I look forward to talking with folks from all walks of life who care about our great state, and I want to better understand how the challenges we’re facing impact them,” said Gov. Edwards. “I’m convinced that there is more that unites us than divides us, and by talking with one another, we can learn from one another.”
The show is scheduled to air on the third week of each month with the first show beginning Tuesday at 2 p.m. Gov. Edwards says he sees the program as yet another way to connect with residents throughout the state.
The program can be heard on the following stations:
Baton Rouge – WBRP
Lafayette – KPEL
Shreveport – KEEL
Monroe – KMLB
Thibodaux – KTIB
Alexandria – KSYL
Slidell - WSLA
New Iberia – KANE
Golden Meadow – KLEB
Ruston – KNBB
Amite – WABL
Tuesday also marks the 100th day in office for the recently elected Democratic governor. A press conference is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to offer Gov. Edwards the opportunity to reflect on his term so far and to offer a look toward the future for Louisiana.
