Today:    On this "Reporters' Roundtable" Thursday, we have three "Times of Northwest Indiana" reporters to talk their stories in print and posted online.  Statehouse reporter Dan Carden has a lot of stories from the General Assembly session to review, including the latest on economic development efforts in Hammond and Gary.  Bill Dolan talks about a last-minute candidate to the Gary mayoral race and a Lake County Council meeting that was puncuated by a testy exchange of words between a new Councilman and the County Sheriff.  And business reporter Joseph Pete has updates about steel, a historic southside Chicago steel mill site, the Gary Air Show and a hot air balloon festival, complete with food, coming to Valparaiso. 

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
