News Roundup: COVID Cases on the Rise; Earthquake Displaces New Bedford Families

Coronavirus spikes continue around the region. Local social media lights up on Sunday morning with the questions: "Did you feel that? Did we just have… an earthquake?" And police continue their search for a missing Mashpee teen. 

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

This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes and Sam Houghton; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; Jessica Hall of the Cape Cod Times; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Cindy McCormick of the Cape Cod Times; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Independent; George Brennan from the Martha's Vineyard Times; and CAI'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.
