LEWISTON, Maine — Maine’s newest U.S. senator is poised to make a national splash this week as he appears on two of the country’s most watched television news and politics shows.

Former Maine governor and independent, Angus King, who will be sworn into the U.S. Senate Thursday, appears on NBC’s “Nightly News with Brian Williams” at 6:30 p.m. that same day. Some of that interview was shot in Maine over the New Year holiday.

King, who campaigned as an independent, is a former two-term governor. After his election King announced he would caucus with Democrats, but has said he intends to vote independently.

On Sunday King appears live on NBC’s “Meet the Press” show, which airs at 9 a.m.

King’s staff confirmed the appearance on his Facebook page.
