Today:   This "Regionally Speaking" focuses on business. The Indiana director for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Barbara Quandt, is with us from Indianapolis to tell the latest about how Hoosier small businesses are coping with the effects of the pandemic.  We bring back our conversation with Indiana University (Bloomington) Kelley School of Business professor Bipin Prabhakar on Project HOPE, a program that helps small businesses create a digital presence if they do not have one.  And "Inside Indiana Business" television host Gerry Dick has a conversation with Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger about new business announcements which included Alliance Steel's ribbon-cutting of its new headquarters in Gary.
