Today:  We have a coronavirus update for northwest Indiana, with the first three COVID-19 cases reported at hospitals in Lake and Porter Counties. Ron Taylor with the Porter County Recycling and Waste Reduction District talks about the first household hazardous waste collection programs of the year coming in May and has an update on the county's recycling drop off program.  We also have "Building Northwest Indiana" from the Construction Advancement Foundation and another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.

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.
