Illinois General Assembly

On Midwest Week, serious legal problems for two members of the Illinois General Assembly, and why that may affect us, downstate. 

Herb Trix’s guest this week is Tony Arnold, reporter for WBEZ, Chicago Public Radio.

You can also hear Midwest Week Fridays on WVIK at 6:20 pm during All Things Considered.  

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
