Governor Brian Schweitzer arrived in Times Square yesterday for his Big Apple tour promoting Montana products and the state as a vacation destination. His agenda includes a late-night gig on the “Late Show with David Letterman” tonight.

David Letterman, who maintains a vacation home near the Rocky Mountain Front near Choteau, has always been public about his love for Montana, which definitely played a role in Schweitzer landing a seat on the show tonight.

Schweitzer arrived in Times Square yesterday accompanied by semi-trucks promoting Montana attractions such as Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. The governor handed out Montana beef, bison jerky and huckleberry jam while inviting recipients to visit our state.

The governor’s office said 11 Montana-themed trucks will travel around the New York area and New England for the next three years. It’s being billed as the “Big Sky Country Road Show” by the governor’s office and the Montana Department of Commerce, which oversees the state’s tourism promotional efforts. The tour is also being used to promote a weekly United Airlines flight from Bozeman to Newark, N.J., right outside of New York City. That flight is scheduled to begin June 9th and continue through September 1st.

Check out the governor chatting it up Letterman tonight. The Letterman program begins at 10:30 p.m. on CBS affiliates.
