Morning Shift

WBEZ’s Friday Chicago and Illinois News Roundup

Each Friday, Morning Shift interviews 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. 

For this Friday’s installment, Morning Shift will touch on a number of big stories, including the frigid weather and its effects on life in our area, responses to the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease at the Illinois Veterans Home by Gov. Bruce Rauner and the CDC and Janice Jackson’s debut as the new Acting CEO of Chicago Public Schools. Our panel this week includes Chicago Tribune reporter Elvia Malagon, Chicago Sun-Times political reporter Tina Sfondeles, and WBEZ education reporter Sarah Karp. 

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.
