Rep. Richard Neal

Among the attendees at Friday’s presidential inauguration and the Congressional luncheon afterward was Richard Neal of Massachusetts’ first House district. First elected in 1988, Neal was one of the senior Democrats at the ceremony as Republicans cemented control of Washington. Neal spoke about President Donald Trump’s address late Friday with WAMC’s Ian Pickus.

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.
