This week on New Mexico in Focus, Capitol Correspondent Gwyneth Doland talks with Gov. Susana Martinez in an exclusive one-on-one interview. This week also marks the halfway point of the 2011 legislative session. Doland talks with legislative leaders about the progress so far or lack thereof and gets the inside scoop on the unusually slow pace with journalists assigned to cover the legislature.
KNME's one hour public affairs show New Mexico in Focus airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 a.m. on KNME, Channel 5.1. The show can also be seen on KNME's Digital Channel 9.1 on Saturdays at 5 p.m.
