Regionally Speaking, Monday, October 4, 2021

Indiana University Northwest

Today:  The official installation ceremony for Indiana University Northwest Chancellor Ken Iwama was held on Friday and his remarks, along with those of I.U. President Pamela Whitten before she makes the installation official, are on "Regionally Speaking."  Iwama has actually been on the job on the Gary campus for a year, but his ceremony was postponed due to the pandemic. We also talk with Toni Simpson, whose mother, Lela Mae Washington celebrated her 100th birthday recently. Toni talks about the big birthday celebration, complete with a parade and with proclamations from local and state officials.  And she hopes that others who have loved ones celebrating such milestones will take the same steps that she did, to help make her mother's celebration so special.

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.
