Today on State of the News

by Laura Ellis on June 24, 2011

It was the storm that no one saw coming. We’ll talk to two local meteorologists about Wednesday night’s severe weather. How did it sneak up on us, why did the roads flood so badly, and what damage was caused? We’ll also ask them why it’s been so rainy and what we can expect from the rest of the summer.

Councilwoman Judy Green addressed the Metro Council at a meeting last night; we’ll hear an excerpt of what she had to say in defense of the ethics charges she’s facing.

Fifty layoffs at the Courier-Journal shook Louisville’s news scene this week. Rick Edmonds from Poynter will help us put the story in a bigger perspective with analysis of Gannett’s national situation and strategy.

We’ll also check with WFPL’s Erica Peterson about the week’s environmental stories, Shea Van Hoy from the News and Tribune will tell us what’s going on on the other side of the river, and Carrie Ritchie from the Indianapolis Star has the latest on the trial of Indiana’s top election official, Charlie White.
