Starting off the program Valley Edition Host Joe Moore speaks with meteorologist Steve Johnson about 2013 marking California’s driest year on record. The two talk weather conditions, water and what 2014 may hold for the San Joaquin Valley.  Johnson is the owner of Steve Johnson and Associates and is with Atmospheric Group International.

Later in the program, Moore interviews Fresno Bee Reporter Tim Sheehan about California’s $68 billion high speed rail project. Sheehan, who covers about high speed rail, talks about the rails history, current state and future growth.

Ending the program, Moore is joined by Owens and Grammy nominated producer and author Randy Poe to talk about the country music giant Buck Owens. The two talk about Poe’s new book titled “Buck 'Em! The Autobiography of Buck Owens.”
