Utica, NY (WIBX) - If you're interested in state politics, a new local program may be just for you.

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is hosting a weekly televised show on Time Warner Cable and Ion Media Network, beginning this week.

Brindisi says the show will focus on a variety of topics.

"...Just talking about issues affecting our local and regional economy. From time to time, I'll have a guest on from state government, who can talk about specific programs that are relevant to the area."

The show premieres tonight at 6:30 on Time Warner Cable channel 99 and will re-air on Thursdays between 6 and 7 a.m. on Ion Media Network's channel 56.
