News Roundup: 4th Arrives with Masks and Social Distancing; New Shark Monitoring Efforts

S Junker

Here comes one of the busiest weekends of the year, and officials are urging continued vigilance against the pandemic.  New-and-improved efforts to track sharks are coming – including maybe surveillance balloons. And a multi-faith group holds a somber rally in Hyannis.

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 Eve Zuckoff and Sam Houghton; Louisa Hufstader of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood from the Cape Cod Chronicle; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; Geoff Spillane from the Cape Cod Times; Rich Saltzberg of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and WCAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse.
