Shameless plug: YNN’s Capital Tonight 2.0

I’ve always been proud of my participation in YNN’s Capital Tonight show, and happy that I’ve been a part of it since the very first episode two years ago. The weekly show has been Austin TV’s biggest commitment to political and public policy coverage since its inception.

Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 8.53.48 AMNow I’m even more proud that I’m part of it, because starting this week with the beginning of the legislative session, Capital Tonight airs 5 nights a week – YNN’s already-big commitment is now even bigger. I’m guessing my schedule will be flexible, but I expect to be on two or three episodes per week.

Capital Tonight has aways been available to Time-Warner Cable subscribers in Austin and across Texas, but here’s the deal: for now, the pay wall for the show on YNN’s website has been lifted, and you can watch to your heart’s content.

Click on the YNN icon in the menu bar at the top of this page to watch segments from last night’s show. Try us out! If you, like me, have lamented the reduction in political and policy news coverage among Texas media, please reward YNN for their commitment by giving us a try.

If you’re already on Time-Warner cable, please check us out on TV.  I’ll be on tonight’s episode, and the show airs live from 7-7:30 on YNN in Austin, and airs at 10 pm every weeknight on the Texas Channel elsewhere in the state.
