Regionally Speaking, Thursday, December 17, 2020
Today: For this "Reporters' Roundtable" program, we talk with "Times" chief political reporter Dan Carden about the stories he's put out in print and online. They include the latest in the dispute between the Lake County Commissioners and County Council over who has jurisdiction over purchasing matters, and a look at how state legislators from northwest Indiana will play a role in shaping state policy when the General Assembly session begins next month. "Times" business reporter Joseph Pete talks about his stories, including his comprehensive look at changes in the local steelmaking industry with a new player: Cleveland-Cliffs, and one about a gain in northwest Indiana population despite the early-2020 job losses. And Hammond Mayor Tom McDermott Jr. joins us for a lively city-wide update.
