Gemma Gaudette discusses the concept and mission of Boise State Public Radio's new daily news program with the station's GM, Tom Michael.
Over the past few years, Boise State Public Radio has become a news leader across the region. There have been strategic discussions among the station management about how we could further enhance our news service while also looking to better engage the community.
We soon began to focus on creating a local/regional show that would mirror the qualities of NPR's best shows: civil discourse while providing in-depth discussions on issues that matter most to our listeners.
Idaho Matters will be the place on-air and online where folks with different views can talk with each other, exchange ideas, debate with respect and come away richer out of the experience. We look forward to developing this program into the local news/public affairs show of record.
