Radio's Jenkins gets TVW gig

Posted by David Postman

Public radio reporter Austin Jenkins was named today as the new host of TVW's Inside Olympia. That's the channel's longest-running program, now in its 11th year, that features indepth interviews.

Jenkins is the Olympia reporter for the Public Radio Northwest News Network and also writes at Crosscut. Hosting Inside Olympia is a part-time job. The show will go on hiatus until the fall when it will return with a new look to go along with the new host.

Jenkins and I have been filling in on the program since Dave Ammons left to take a job with the Secretary of State's office. In January, I'll go back to hosting another TVW show, Olympia On Call.

Jenkins is a great choice for this weekly gem of an indepth converation with political newsmakers. It's always reminded me of "Charley Rose for Washington State" and Jenkins will extend that tradition. David did a great job during the interim. Looking forward to him back on Olympia On Call.

Speaking of TVW, Secretary of State candidate, Mark Greene (Party of Commons), has recorded a speech that will be broadcast on that station, soon.
[We don't know the schedule, yet.] Mark was recently heard on KUOW Radio, the National Public Radio Station in Seattle.

As viewers will see, the Party of Commons does not hesitate to criticize either Democrats or Republicans if they are not working in the best interests of our nation.

The Party of Commons, economically progressive, culturally traditional, generally anti-interventionist (for common sense defense), and pro-Bill of Rights, endorses political candidates from parties across the spectrum, both minor and major -- and independents, such as Ralph Nader for president.
