News Roundup: COVID Recovery Facilty for Cape in Limbo; Local Reps React to D.C. Destruction

Cape Cod officials want to open a COVID-19 recovery facility to relieve pressure on hospitals – but they’ve been waiting on state approval. Meanwhile, the Cape passed 250 deaths from the coronavirus this week. And local representatives react to the storming of the Capitol by pro-Trump extremists.

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; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; George Brennan from the Martha's Vineyard Times; CAI's Mike Deehan at the Statehouse; and CAI's Eve Zuckoff.

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.
