WKAR senior capital correspondent and Off the Record anchor Tim Skubick has conducted a final hour-long exit interview with Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm which is scheduled to be aired on Wednesday, Dec. 29, on Michigan State University public TV outlet WKAR-TV Channel 23 in Lansing. The special, which airs at 8 p.m., will mark WKAR's first production in high definition.

Recorded at the governor's residence on Dec. 17, the program also will be seen on public television stations throughout the state (check local listings). It also will be re-broadcast on WKAR at 11 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 31; and at 11 p.m. Monday, Jan. 3, on WKAR World.

The governor will discuss her eight years in office, provide insight to the position's challenges, and reflect on the highlights and difficulties during her administration. During the second half of the program, she is joined by First Gentleman Dan Mulhern.

"This is the governor's final exit interview," said Skubick, who has covered her for the past 12 years - four as attorney general and eight as governor. "She saved the last one for us and it is the only one being produced at the executive mansion."

The program continues WKAR's tradition of producing at-home conversations with the governor, which began with Gov. William Milliken. Tim Skubick has has recorded conversations with every Michigan governor that has been in office during his 40 years of covering Michigan government and politics.

The program will be available for online viewing at video.wkar.org immediately following the Dec. 29 broadcast and for purchase on DVD.

'An Evening with Governor Granholm' is a co-production between WKAR and Michigan State University's College of Communication Arts and Sciences.
