Mur­phy, pub­lic ra­dio agree on 3 ‘Ask the Gov­er­nor’ shows

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - NEWS -

New Jersey Gov. Phil Mur­phy and pub­lic ra­dio sta­tions have reached a deal to air a con­stituent call-in show.

The Demo­cratic gov­er­nor an­nounced the three-show Ask the Gov­er­nor agree­ment with WBGO in Ne­wark, WHYY in Philadel­phia and WNYC in New York in a state­ment is­sued Thurs­day.

Mur­phy is set to ap­pear at 7 p.m. Mon­day, at 8 p.m. Sept. 17 and 7 p.m. Nov. 19.

The hour-long shows will in­clude a mix of ques­tions from callers, a seg­ment on pre-se­lected “timely” top­ics and ques­tions col­lected be­fore the broad­casts.

The agree­ment comes af­ter Mur­phy can­celed his May ap­pear­ance on pub­lic ra­dio when the sta­tions wanted to have a re­porter ask Mur­phy ques­tions.

Mur­phy had said that would turn the show into “Meet the Press,” in­stead of “Ask the Gov­er­nor.”
