Premier Kathleen Wynne can now add radio host to her resume.

Sunday, she sat in the host chair at the Newstalk 1010 studios for the inaugural edition of a new show, The Province.

She sounded a little nervous at the outset, perhaps a bit overwhelmed by all the buttons, screens, traffic and commercial breaks.

As promised, the premier focused her attention on infrastructure, what she called the "bones of the province."

"It's the roads, it's the bridges, it's the schools, it's the hospital," she said.

Transportation was something many callers wanted to talk about, specifically federal funding for transportation and transit.

The Wynne's message was that Canada needs a national infrastructure strategy. She said the federal government does fund projects, but the money is not steady or predictable.

Next Sunday, PC leader Tim Hudak will take the host seat. The NDP's Andrea Horwath is up the following Sunday.
