the governor's plan for Illinois to return to "normal."

On Midwest Week, Illinois begins to relax the strict stay-at-home orders issued two months ago by the governor.

Herb Trix's guest is Hannah Meisel, state government and politics reporter for The Daily Line, a subscription based news outlet for political and government professionals.

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.
