The controversial ad from GOP gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives, the return of hyperlocal news to Chicago thanks to Block Club Chicago, and the snowy weather: those are just three topics Morning Shift is digging into in our latest 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 is also 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.
