Watch Talk Politics | Ask A Question
Talk Business proudly announces a new venture aimed at connecting state political leaders with their constituents in an online forum that capitalizes on new and traditional media channels.
This year, "Talk Politics" will feature a series of 12 one-on-one, 30-minute Q&A sessions with high-ranking Arkansas elected officials who will answer questions from citizens on a variety of topics and current events. Our first guest will be Gov. Mike Beebe (D) at 10am on Wednesday, May 11. Talk Business host Roby Brock will moderate the Q&A session.
Through the use of Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, Ustream video, and our existing production capabilities, "Talk Politics" will seek questions from our intimate political audience for several days in advance of a one-on-one interview. Brock will pose the questions to a political guest and seek input from viewers throughout the half-hour session via Twitter, Facebook and Ustream's chat forum.
Afterwards, the content from the Q&A will be disseminated through our TV, radio, print and web content partners and made available to all media in Arkansas through video and audio formats.
Sen. John Boozman (R) and Sen. Mark Pryor (D) have also committed to appear in upcoming forums. Invitations are being extended to Arkansas' four Congressmen. Beebe has agreed to appear every other month on the program.
