Talk Business & Politics will be the first Arkansas media outlet to participate in President Donald Trump’s White House press briefings on Tuesday (Feb. 14).
The administration announced in January it would include media outlets in markets outside of Washington, D.C. in the briefings with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer through Skype connections. The first Skype questions were taken Feb. 1, with journalists from Kentucky, Ohio, Oregon and Rhode Island. It was the first time questions were taken from journalists other than those approved for seats in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room in the White House.
Talk Business & Politics’ Roby Brock has been asked to participate with a question during the Tuesday press conference, which will take place between 11:15 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. CST.
“As a leader in coverage of Arkansas politics and policy, this is a great opportunity to be able to ask a question of relevance for our statewide audience,” said Michael Tilley, executive editor of Talk Business & Politics and the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal. “We hope our readers, listeners and viewers will provide us with many relevant options for questions they’d like to see the White House answer. Your input is welcome and appreciated.”
Interested parties can submit questions to Brock through the Facebook comments section at the bottom of this post, through Twitter by including @RobyBrock, or by email at [email protected].
Talk Business & Politics, which airs on Sundays statewide, is partnered with three TV stations across Arkansas — KATV (Little Rock/Central Arkansas), KFSM (Fort Smith/Northwest Arkansas) and KAIT (Jonesboro/Northeast Arkansas) — as well as NPR member stations in state.
