Morning Shift is back with another weekly news roundup. Each Friday, we interview three local journalists from inside and outside the WBEZ newsroom to bring context and analysis to the biggest Chicagoland and Illinois news stories of the week.
WBEZ’s Friday Chicago and Illinois News Roundup will also be available as a podcast so people can listen on Friday, Saturday or Sunday to get ready for the coming week in everything from politics to education to criminal justice and more.
For this Friday’s installment, Morning Shift touches on a number of big stories, including the governor’s race, the latest updates on the Obama Center and the announcement that Chicago is still in the running for the new Amazon headquarters. Our panel this week features three local journalists.
Dave McKinney, state political reporter for WBEZ
