On the Tube

Gov. Bill Richardson will appear on NBC’s Meet the Press this weekend to discuss immigration, financial reform and other issues on the show’s Sunday roundtable.

Remember the last time he was on that show?

The show airs at 9 am Sunday on Channel 4.

Also coming up on TV, at least for Comcast subscribers, are some candidates forums for the contested governor and lieutenant primaries.

The Republican forums will be moderated by Marco Gonzales, a long time Republican activist and former Congressional candidate. He practices law with the Santa Fe based firm, Modrall Sperling, where he is also a partner.

The Democratic forum will be moderated by Chris Garcia, a political science professor at the University of New Mexico.

Candidates will be answering questions drawn up by the political science departments of UNM and New Mexico State University.

Each session is scheduled for one hour and will be aired on local Comcast access channels across the State of New Mexico beginning on Friday May 7 in the following areas and channels:

Santa Fe 21, Albuquerque 77, Farmington 9, Gallup 21, Grants 10, Las Vegas 23, Los Alamos 70, Las Cruces 98, Lovington 51, Silver City 21 and Socorro 12.

The programs will also be available anytime on Comcast Video on Demand platforms in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Santa Fe and Farmington beginning on Monday May 10 and accessible until May 31.

The tapings aren't publi events, so, no you can't go cheer your candidate.
