A nationwide student walkout over gun laws, Michael Madigan and the #MeToo movement and racist taunts at the Chicago Blackhawks game — those are just a few of the stories and topics Morning Shift is digging into in our latest weekly news roundup.
Each Friday, three local journalists from inside and outside the WBEZ newsroom bring context and analysis to the biggest Chicagoland and Illinois news stories of the week so listeners can get caught up and feel prepared to understand the latest about our city and state going into the weekend.
WBEZ’s Friday Chicago and Illinois News Roundup is also available as a podcast. Listen over the weekend to get ready for the coming week in everything from politics to education to criminal justice and more.
