This week: Flood insurance rates are changing for homeowners; the idea is to make them more fair. Booster shots are coming, and likely so is a COVID vaccine for kids 5-and-up: we have the local details. And Barnstable County may require all its employees to be vaccinated.

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 Eve Zuckoff and Sam Houghton; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Banner; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Cindy McCormick of the Cape Cod Times; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and CAI's Patrick Flanary and Mike Deehan with news from 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.
