Eye On Boise: Butch Bows to Nat’l Grid Title Game

For years, the governor’s State of the State speech was given around mid-day, not long after the Legislature’s official convening of its session at noon. But the last few years former Gov. Dirk Kempthorne moved the big speech to an evening time slot, smack in the middle of prime time. That’s changing this year – Gov. Otter has scheduled his address to a joint session of the Legislature for 1 p.m. on Monday. His communications director, Mark Warbis, said, “I don’t know that this is entirely the reason, but I think one of the main reasons is that is the night of the national championship game for college football – and there’s much less likelihood of people watching it if we’re up against that” — Betsy Russell/Eye On Boise.

DFO: It won’t matter in North Idaho if the game’s on KAYU-TV.

Question: Good call by the new guv?
