WFPL News: Today on Here and Now

Here’s what we have planned for Here and Now at 1pm: it’s turned out to be a pretty nice day, but there’s more rain on the way and the water is rising, flooding the riverfront and jeopardizing Waterfront Wednesday and some Derby events. MSD held a news conference a couple hours ago. We’ll get an update.

With the final week of the Indiana General Assembly, the possibility of a 6% tuition increase at the University of Louisville, and a hearing into the allegations surrounding councilwoman Judy Green… we thought we should get a look ahead from our news team, so we’ll chat with Political Editor Phillip M. Bailey and News Director Gabe Bullard.

Also this hour, we’ll remember the work of photographer Chris Hondros, who was killed in Libya last week. And we’ll talk to a linguist from Yale who is taking a census of American dialects. The result is a map of how English varies with geography, ethnicity and across time.

Tuesday sneak peek: Author Steven Levy will be in Louisville tomorrow to talk about his new book “In the Plex.” He’ll drop by for an extended interview on Tuesday.
