News Roundup: A Holiday Weekend Without Pep; Coronavirus Numbers Continue Decline

Alecia Orsini

That was the quietest Memorial Day Weekend in memory. So, is it a preview of our pandemic summer to come? Meanwhile, an aggressive coyote is shot at the National Seashore. And baseball may return to Cape Cod this summer after all – but it’s likely not how you think.

We have those stories and more on the local news roundup, as WCAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include WCAI’s Sam Houghton and Eve Zuckoff; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood from the Cape Cod Chronicle; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; Matt Goisman from the Cape Cod Times; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Jack Spillane of the Standard-Times; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette;  and WCAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse.

Steve is Managing Editor of News. He came to WCAI in 2007. He also hosts the weekly News Roundup on Friday mornings, and produces The Fishing News.
