TODAY | Michigan Calling: House Leaders Bolger, Hammel
East Lansing, MI – "Michigan Calling" airs today at 9 a.m. on 90.5 WKAR, AM/870 and public radio stations statewide. It will also be available as a live video webcast at WKAR.org and many MPRN station websites.
The live call-in program features Michigan House Speaker Jase Bolger-R and House Minority Leader Rick Hammel-D, and is hosted by MPRN state Capitol bureau chief Rick Pluta.
"Michigan Calling" is a chance for citizens to question the legislative leaders about the budget, the economy and Governor Rick Snyder's sometimes-controversial agenda that includes tax and education reform, altering the states relationship with local governments and promoting the growth of small business. This will also be a chance for listeners to query the House leaders on what they see as the big issues in the future.
On-demand playback of the program will be available at WKAR.org beginning later this afternoon.
"Michigan Calling" is a continuing project of public broadcasters to connect their audience with political leaders and candidates.
