Governor Brown Inauguration On JPR

Spencer Raymond/OPB

Oregon’s new governor will be sworn in Wednesday morning at the state capitol in Salem, and JPR will carry the event live.  Kate Brown replaces John Kitzhaber… he announced his resignation last week, effective today.

Kate Brown is currently the secretary of state; she will take her oath of office as governor at 10 AM Wednesday.

Jefferson Public Radio will join Oregon Public Broadcasting’s coverage of the event at Ten on the News & Information service.

Coverage will conclude at around 10:30 AM.

Geoffrey Riley is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism and has hosted the Jefferson Exchange on JPR since 2009. He's been a broadcaster in the Rogue Valley for more than 35 years, working in both television and radio.
