October 30th, 2013
On Wednesday, October 30th, WOJB Public Affairs Director Eric Schubring conducted an interview with Wisconsin State Senator and prospective Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Vinehout , and FightingBob.com founder Ed Garvey. The interview came on the heels of a University of Marquette Law School poll showing Senator Vinehout polling as well against Republican Governor Scott Walker as announced Democratic candidate Mary Burke.
And while the statewide Wisconsin media mostly failed to report Vinehout's strong showing, Eric Schubring thought it was newsworthy and got her on the air.
