KING 5 hosts Angel and Schlicher, and a couple of reporters

Friday morning Jan Angel and Nathan Schlicher sat down with Mark Wright at KING-5 for a segment that will air Sunday morning.

Wright also invited Tacoma News Tribune political reporter Jordan Schrader and me to weigh in once the candidates left.

Both spots will air sometime between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. Sunday. Each segment was around five minutes.

Schrader and I were in what I think you would call a “control room” while the candidates talked. I don’t want to provide any spoilers, so you’ll have to watch it to see it. What won’t be on air, though, is the candidates apparently kept on debating well after the cameras stopped rolling. Everything I’ve heard secondhand and could see on the monitors suggested it got a little testy. Nothing too outrageous, but oh, how I wished I could hear what they were saying.

In the control room one of the directors wearing headphones said afterward that they were still talking, like it was a surprise. Another one said they were laughing, but the first director then said that it was “awkward.” They both were out of there before Schrader and I taped.

Enjoy it, if five and five minutes of political talk is your thing.

  1. I predict Angel tried out a different excuse for trying to eliminate State healthcare coverage mandates, besides “I guess I didn’t read the whole bill.” Maybe she’s now a strong supporter of the mandates in Obamacare instead…that would be awkward. I thought she wasn’t allowing herself to be interviewed anymore?!?

  2. Excuse me — does anyone know how the people who missed both shows – see it and/or hear it?
    Will the Sun post a URL?
    Thanks! Sharon
