Re: “John Hess

I was the Statehouse News Bureau Chief for Boise State Radio starting in 1994. Under the direction of then-GM Jim Paluzzi, I turned an empty room in the Statehouse into a news bureau that covered the region, delivering about a hundred newscasts a week, as well as election returns, legislative coverage, and so on. Now imagine my reaction when this guy, before he's even moved to Boise, declares "what's going on in the state and the state's capitol" to be "[t]he missing piece" in Boise State Radio's programming, as if I, my staff, and our whole bureau did not exist. I called him on it. He apologized and said he was "misquoted". But did he ever call BW and ask for a correction? Nope. I left the place a few months after Mr. Hess rode triumphantly into town. Two years later, not only has John failed to created the hour-long daily talk show he wanted, but the news content is dull, and production values are non-existent. I miss radio, but I don't miss Boise State Radio.
