It's hard to get an interview these days with Gov. Bill Richardson. In fact, I believe it has been months (many many months) since Richardson has sat done with any of us lowly local media types.
So kudos to Lorene Mills of Report from Santa Fe, who got the governor to sit down for an interview that will air Friday night at 10:30 on KNME-TV, Channel 5.1.
Richardson apparently waxes poetic on the budget, and in particular on what he's willing -- and not willing -- to cut in the session that starts Saturday. Sounds like required watching as all of you Roundhouse-goers prepare for what's coming in the days ahead.
The interview comes as Mills' show is changing its broadcast times. (Which I've got to say is great, as the show was on waaaay too early before.)
The interview program, which features a variety of political and cultural guests, will now air on Friday nights at 10:30 p.m. for Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico viewers on KNME-TV, Channel 5.1 and on Saturday at 6 p.m. for eastern New Mexico viewers on KENW-TV, Channel 3.
It will also be shown on Sunday mornings at 7:30 a.m. for Albuquerque, Santa Fe and northern New Mexico viewers on Channel 5.1 and at 8:30 a.m. for viewers in Las Cruces and southern New Mexico, on KRWG-TV, Channel 22.
