Rep. Chris Herrod will finally talk to the folks from PBS — on the radio

Rep. Chris Herrod, R-Provo, who wants the Utah Legislature to oversee KUED-Ch. 7's budget but has never talked to anyone at the station about that, will do so on Thursday. On the radio.

Herrod is scheduled to be a guest on KRCL FM-90.9 at 6 p.m. He'll be joined by Michael Dunn, KUED's general manager, along with Patricia de Stacy Harrison, the president and CEO of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
