Each week as a public service to our listeners, KAMB airs Inside Look. Hosted by PGM/Music/News and Public Affairs Director, Dave Benton, this short feature presents interviews with newsmakers or public servants on a particular issue, helping to bring better understanding to the listeners about what's going on in our community.
The Inside Look short feature is broadcast Friday nights at 10:15pm, Saturday evenings at 6:50pm, and Sunday afternoons at 1:50pm. The long form edition of Inside Look is also aired every third weekend of each month at 9:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.
|2/1/2014||Mike Jensen, Merced Irrigation District
Dave interviewed Mike Jensen, Public & Government Relations Officer with the Merced Irrigation District, about the State drought and it's impact on Merced County. Mike talked at length about MID's initial plans for the allotment of water to Merced County farmers and ranchers. Mike informed listeners that instead of acre feet allotments, it will only be inches of water being allotted to agriculture. This will have a huge impact to all and could greatly impact future consumer prices for agricultural products.
