2020 News Recap: Cape Faces COVID with Resiliency; Rallies for Racial Justice

The “novel coronavirus” got its first mention on the Local News Roundup on January 31st, 2020. Just when you thought we were done with that old year, we’ve got a look back at the top local stories. From early coronavirus reporting, to a summer like no other, to vaccines arriving. Black Lives Matter protests stir the region, and Town Clerks figure out how to hold an election in a pandemic.

CAI News Director Steve Junker discusses those stories and more with CAI news staff reporters and producers: Jennette Barnes, Eve Zuckoff, Kathryn Eident, and Sam Houghton.

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.
