This week: A new wind farm will be setting up shop south of the islands. Free at-home Covid tests come to the region. And the question of PFAS in “artificial turf” playing fields has suddenly become a big one.

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 Jennette Barnes, Eve Zuckoff, and Sam Houghton; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; Jason Graziadei of Nantucket Current; CAI's Patrick Flanary and Mike Deehan with news from the Statehouse, and CAI's Daniel Ackerman.

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.
