Republican senators launch a Friday radio show this week.
It will begin only on KOWZ in Owatonna, but Senate staff members hope to expand the show to other stations.
The program will be hosted by Sen. Mike Parry, R-Waseca, and in the debut show his guests include Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch, R-Buffalo, and Assistant Majority Leader David Hann, R-Eden Prairie.
â€œInside the Senate,â€ which will run about 30 minutes, will be provided to any station that wants to air it. The GOP will not pay for it to be aired and the stations will not pay to obtain the show.
