HELENA — Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer has big plans for promoting a new direct flight from New York City to Bozeman.
Schweitzer says he is scheduled to be on the Late Show with David Letterman on April 25. Letterman owns a ranch north of Helena and is one of Montana's most famous part time residents.
The governor says the state is placing murals of Montana attractions and wildlife on a dozen city delivery trucks.
Schweitzer says he is going to take one downtown and give away Montana products like beef jerky and huckleberry jam, hoping to "cause a commotion."
The governor says Montana has never gotten cheaper advertising than it will get with his television appearance.
The new flights are scheduled to start in June and will be offered by United Airlines.
