Panelists Named for Linda McMahon’s ‘Face the State’ Interview

Dennis House, host of Face the State, the public-affairs program on Hartford’s WFSB, Channel 3, has named the panel for the interview with Senate candidate Linda McMahon, which will be taped Thursday and aired Sunday.

House’s co-interviewers are Daniela Altimari of the Hartford Courant and Brian Lockhart of the Stamford Advocate. Both already have contributed valuable coverage of the McMahon campaign. Altimari wrote a profile of McMahon, which I discussed here. Lockhart wrote a piece exploring the tension between critics expressing distaste for McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment, and the reality of WWE’s economic impact on the state; I discussed that story here.

In House’s blog post announcing Sunday’s lineup (, he joked, “Someone already called the appearance the ‘Rumble in Rocky Hill.'” That someone was the headline writer for Tom Dudchik’s Connecticut Capitol Report when it linked to my post earlier this week — in which I said we obviously can expect House & Company to do a much better job grilling Linda McMahon than Kate Snow of ABC News did last Saturday.
