The Final Roundtable

Posted By on Mon, Dec 20, 2010 at 11:32 AM

We look back on 2010 during the very last Friday Roundtable on KUAT-TV's Arizona Illustrated.

For the last 15 years or so, I’ve had the privilege and honor to appear on the show to interview guests and talk about the week in review.

I’d like to say thanks to the crew and staff at Arizona Illustrated for all the hard work over the years and express my gratitude to the folks out there who watched the show. I’m looking forward to seeing what Michael Chihak, the former Tucson Citizen publisher, does with his new political show, Arizona Week, when it debuts in January. I may even pop up on there from time to time.

And I'd like to give a very big thanks to Bill Buckmaster, who did a first-rate job building Arizona Illustrated up over his 23-year career at KUAT. Bill knows this town, he knows the newsmakers, he knows the issues—and he always plays it fair and down the line. I’m lucky to have had the chance to work with him over the years and I wish him success with his new radio venture, Buckmaster, which will be launching at 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 3 on KJLL, 1330 AM. The show repeats in the evening from 7 to 8 p.m.; you can find out more details about the program at buckmastershow.com.

I’ll be joining Buckmaster and other members from the Roundtable on the Friday edition of the radio show, so be sure to tune in.
