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. It’s an area of that often gets little attention in the news cycle despite having a far bigger impact on your day-to-day life than what happens in Washington. So each day Brett will speak with journalists, political analysts, activists and politicians as we discuss how government affects you.
