FYI Politics with Brett Johnson
Weekdays 2-3 PM
Join Brett Johnson Wednesdays-Fridays from 2-3 PM for a Minnesota political news talk show that covers more than just presidential politics. While the show will chronicle some of the underreported national news stories, Brett puts an extra emphasis on state and local government in Minnesota.
