Chat with Brian Mansfield And Richard Rushfield on Wednesday!

You know them, you love them, you read them.   Brian Mansfield of USA Today’s Idol Chatter and Richard Rushfield of the LA Times will be dropping by mjsbigblog for a chat on Wednesday.

Mark your calendars peeps!   And bring your smart, thoughtful questions for these two titans of Idol commentary.

The idea took shape shortly after the American Idol tour began in Portland OR.   Both Richard and Brian live blogged the event–afterward there was quite the lively debate in one of the threads here about the role of and relationship between bloggers and their commenters.   Very unexpectedly, Richard and Brian stopped by to throw their two cents in.

Y’all were so awesome they’re coming back to chat and take your questions.

And as a side note, let’s congratulate Richard Rushfield on his new job.   He’ll be leaving the LA Times to take on the position of West Coast editor of the entertainment blog, Gawker, beginning August 31.

Just so you know–Richard assures me he’ll continue to cover Idol over at his new digs.

Here are the deets:
