Valley Edition - February 20, 2018 - NPR's Tamara Keith; Protests Against Guns; Art Song Festival

Feb 20, 2018

This week on Valley Edition, we talk with NPR’s White House correspondent Tamara Keith about growing up in Hanford and her experience covering the Trump administration. Columnist Joe Mathews also joins us to explain why he thinks Fresno, Clovis and Madera could one day rival Austin, Texas as a major inland regional hub, but only if local governments cooperate. FM89’s Kern County correspondent Christina Lopez brings us the story of a Bakersfield-area protest following last week’s Florida school shooting. We'll also learn about the challenges of bringing more psychiatric resources to the most underserved part of the state. Plus a preview of Fresno State’s Art Song Festival.
