"Regionally Speaking" host Chris Nolte recently spoke with Alan Myszkowksi  creator of Local 219 a digital media company to discuss the work his organization is doing along with local partners to give  families in northwest Indiana instant aid during the COVID-19 crisis.  

Lakeshore Public Radio 89.1FM, initially known as The Lakeshore 89.1FM, first hit the airwaves across Northwest Indiana on January 19, 2010. The station was created after the board of directors for Lakeshore Public Media, which also operates our sister station Lakeshore PBS, saw the need for regional access to a public radio station in order to provide localized up-to-the-minute news and information for NW Indiana residents.
