IMG_1300.jpeg

This week: COVID case numbers continue to climb in Provincetown, and now Outer Cape businesses are receiving “home test kits” for employees. Meanwhile, state officials are laying plans for distributing the vaccine to children under 12. And Falmouth schedules a hearing on the proposed machine gun range, but wonders if the Army National Guard will show up.

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 Sam Houghton, Jennette Barnes, and Daniel Ackerman; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Banner; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and CAI's Kathryn Eident speaking with statehouse reporter Mike Deehan; and CAI's environment reporter 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.
