TVW: new Inside Olympa host…

More from the in-box...

Now that veteran Associated Press reporter Dave Ammons has gone to the dark side – i.e. gone to work as a state-paid spokesman – he's gone from his dual role as the longtime host of "Inside Olympia," a weekly interview show on the TVW public-affairs network. (In Spokane, it's Comcast channel 25.)

In Ammons' place: Austin Jenkins, a public radio capitol correspondent whose mild-mannered delivery camouflages a knack for asking probing questions.

The interview-style show isn't likely to replace primetime. But it’s a rare long-form look at the minds, motivations and goals of elected officials, from obscure agencies to the governor and top lawmakers. It typically airs Thursday-, Saturday- and Sunday nights.
