CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - U.S. Sens. Mike Enzi and John Barrasso say President Donald Trump intends to nominate a Wyoming resident to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

The Republican senators say they recommended Riverton resident Ruby Calvert to the Trump administration.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting oversees the government’s investment in public broadcasting, which supports the operations of nearly 1,500 locally owned and operated public television and radio stations nationwide.
