Ways To Subscribe

A top advisor to then president Barack Obama is in Bloomington Normal. David Axelrod says President Biden faces a challenge on immigration and thinks in spite of Pandemic fatigue among voters, Governor JB Pritzker will do okay in the next election cycle. Other Democrats? Well, that's tougher. The singer songwriter group Stone and Snow can't always write about things in the moment. It takes a while for Karen Bridges and Clint Thomson to work through things. Their album is 'We Were Made For These Times.' And the President of the University of Illinois system celebrates a partnership with Illinois State University and the chance to work on the state goal of becoming a hub for EV technology.

WGLT Senior Reporter Charlie Schlenker has spent more than three award-winning decades in radio. He lives in Normal with his family.
