Then watch the show and join four groups of people, each intent on reaching the top of one of four Idaho peaks.

If you're going to be climbing Mt. Borah in the next couple of weeks... and if you're willing to carry a small camera and shoot some video of Chicken Out Ridge, contact us. Our October show is called "Summit Idaho" and we need a little footage of Borah. (The main segments in the show will feature He-Devil, Scotchman, Gilmore, and Vienna Peak.) Thanks, Bruce. (This photo, of Chicken Out Ridge, is from Alice Marie Schenk.)

Join us tonight at 6 p.m., in our studio. It's free, and the first 50 will receive an Outdoor Idaho coffee mug. Part of the Boise 150 Sesqui-Speaks lecture series in our studio.

Wow, such eloquence! James Hawley, William Borah, Clarence Darrow, as they argued 100 years ago here in Idaho, in the ‘Trial of the Century.’ It’s part of a video clip we’ll be showing tonight at 6 p.m. in our Idaho Public Television studio, for the Boise 150 Sesqui-Speaks lecture series. Refreshments served. It’s free, and the first 50 get an Outdoor Idaho coffee mug. What a deal! And there will be several Outdoor Idaho video clips presented as well, dealing with Boise history. (The so-called ‘trial of the century’ stemmed from conflicts in the silver mines of north Idaho between capitalists and workers.

Reporters Melissa Davlin and Aaron Kunz to Co-host IdahoPTV’s IDAHO REPORTS 

Two Idaho reporters with a combination of youth and considerable experience covering Idaho politics have been named the co-hosts of IDAHO REPORTS, Idaho Public Television announced this week. Former Twin Falls reporter Melissa Davlin has joined the IDAHO REPORTS staff and will co-host Idaho’s only statewide legislative program with Aaron Kunz this coming January.

Davlin, 27, is no stranger to Idaho politics, having covered the state Legislature for the Twin Falls Times-News for the past two sessions. She was also a features reporter for four years. 

Kunz, 35, worked on IDAHO REPORTS last year, covering stories on the environment and natural resource issues. He is also a producer for EarthFix, a public media project of several Northwest public TV and radio outlets, including IdahoPTV, Oregon Public Broadcasting and KCTS Seattle.

“I’m excited about the strengths of our young co-hosts,” says Bruce Reichert, Idaho Public Television’s executive producer. “They understand the value of this venerable show to Idahoans and are committed to making IDAHO REPORTS informative, insightful, and even fun to watch.”

Now in its fourth decade of covering Gem State politics, IDAHO REPORTS airs annually during Idaho’s legislative session and provides commentary and analysis of the developments within the state government. Betsy Russell of The Spokesman-Review and veteran political analyst Jim Weatherby will continue as contributors to the weekly show, which airs on Friday evenings and repeats on Sunday mornings. Other reporters from around the state will join the program from time to time, providing different perspectives on issues of importance to Idahoans.

“I’m thrilled to join the team at Idaho Public Television, and I’m looking forward to working with Aaron and covering the Legislature for IDAHO REPORTS,” says Davlin, a University of Idaho graduate. “I particularly love delving into state budget numbers and Health & Welfare issues.”

“IDAHO REPORTS is a show that’s important to me; it’s one of the few places where you can see government at work,” says Kunz. “I will be focusing on environmental issues during this session. I also care deeply about education, having two young children of my own. I am very excited to be working with Melissa as we prepare for the upcoming session that starts in January; I know she will do a great job of helping inform viewers about issues that are important to the state.”

Davlin and Kunz will also provide analysis online via Twitter, Facebook and the Web. 
Award-winning coordinating producer Seth Ogilvie, veteran director Ricardo Ochoa, and Web developer Rick Penticoff round out the IDAHO REPORTS team. 

One of the areas of focus for the upcoming legislative program will be the infrastructure needs of the state. The IDAHO REPORTS team is planning to produce an extensive series that will stretch out over several weeks, beginning in January.

Last year’s host, Greg Hahn, left Idaho Public Television in March to accept an administrative position at Boise State University.
