The Wyoming Association of Broadcasters annual convention is this Friday and Saturday in Sheridan. Numerous events are planned throughout the two-day convention, including a Republican gubernatorial candidate forum Saturday morning at 10:30 at the Sheridan Holiday Inn. WAB Board Chairman Kim Love says that the candidates will be Rita Meyer, Matt Mead, Colin Simpson and Ron Micheli, and that the public is welcome to attend.
