I was on KQED Channel 9’s “This Week in Northern California” last night talking about the Abel Maldonado mess. The show also featured the Chronicle’s Victoria Colliver on Anthem Blue Cross’ rate hikes; KQED Public Radio’s K. Oanh Ha on the 2010 State of the Valley Conference; and the Chronicle’s Rachel Gordon on the groundbreaking for the new MUNI subway line to San Francisco’s Chinatown.
Josh Richman covers state and national politics for the Bay Area News Group. A New York City native, he earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and reported for the Express-Times of Easton, Pa. for five years before coming to the Oakland Tribune and ANG Newspapers in 1997. He is a frequent guest on KQED Channel 9’s “This Week in Northern California;” a proud father; an Eagle Scout; a somewhat skilled player of low-stakes poker; a rather good cook; a firm believer in the use of semicolons; and an unabashed political junkie who will never, EVER seek elected office.
