Congressional Corner With Jim McGovern

Congressman Jim McGovern

    Eric Cantor was thought to be a future Speaker of the House, but now he’s heading home from Congress.

In today’s Congressional Corner, Massachusetts Representative Jim McGovern tells WAMC’s Ian Pickus, sitting in for Alan Chartock, that he’s happy to see Cantor go.

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
