News Roundup: New Bedford Expands Its Embrace of Offshore Wind; Another Right Whale Entangled

S Junker
Nobska Light signals through a foggy July night.

This week: A major new development comes to the New Bedford waterfront; the state’s last mass vaccination site, in Dartmouth, packs up as the pandemic response shifts to mobile outreach; and another endangered right whale is spotted entangled in rope and fishing gear, this time in Canada.

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

This week's guests include CAI's Daniel Ackerman and Sam Houghton; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Michaela Chesin of the Provincetown Banner; Cindy McCormick of the Cape Cod Times; CAI's environment reporter Eve Zuckoff; and CAI's statehouse reporter Mike Deehan.
