Alan Chartock, Who Interviewed Mario Cuomo For Two Decades, Remembers Governor

WAMC's Alan Chartock interviewed former New York Governor Mario Cuomo more than any other journalist during the Democrat's three terms and after. Their weekly radio chats became a nationally syndicated program and gave listeners insight into the governor's thinking on policy and everyday issues. Dr. Chartock remembered Gov. Cuomo, who died Thursday at 82, speaking with WAMC's Ian Pickus.

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders. Dr. Chartock also appears each week on The Media Project and The Roundtable and offers commentary on Morning Edition, weekdays at 7:40 a.m.
