Today:  On this "Reporters' Roundtable" Thursday, we have Lakeshore Public Radio reporter Sharon Jackson's conversation with Crown Point Mayor David Uran, who is convalescing at home after having tested positive for COVID-19 about 18 days ago.  He is doing well, and he shared his experiences with Sharon.  "Post-Tribune" reporter Hannah Reed and "Times" business reporter Joseph Pete are talking about the stories they wrote and posted online and in the print editions.  Hannah's stories are pandemic-related, about school districts changing their students' instruction modes, and Joseph's stories run the gamut, from business layoff-related (BP in Chicago and Whiting) to the downtown Gary demolition projects to the passing of Gary teenaged chef Ben Watkins.

On this edition of the podcast you’ll hear the latest on Crown Point Mayor Dave Uran testing positive for COVID-19, Bárbara Anguiano reports on Johnson and Johnson resuming its vaccine trials in the Region, and Chris Nolte has a conversation with Burgess Peoples, the president and chief strategist for the City of Gary’s Faith Leaders and Community Partnerships. All of that, and more, on this edition of “Lakeshore Update”…


CROWN POINT - Crown Point mayor Dave Uran wasn't feeling well on Sunday night.  He said he knew something was wrong. Then on Monday (Nov. 9th) he learned he tested positive for COVID-19.  Uran spoke to Lakeshore Public Radio on Wednesday to share his experience.
