WGLT's The Leadoff - Wednesday 3/9/22

WGLT's The Leadoff is everything you need to know for Wednesday, March 9. Correspondent Edith Brady-Lunny tells Ryan Denham about new context that's important to consider in the case of 29-year-old Kimberlee Burton. Burton has been charged with the concealment of a death and her daughter, seven-month-old Zaraz Walker has not been found. Plus, the Mayor of Normal says the stressed financial situation in Unit 5 could have wide-ranging affects on the community. Chris Koos also says a recent lobbying trip to Washington D.C. was productive.

Abigail Schombert is an audio production intern at WGLT. She joined WGLT in summer 2021. She is a creative technologies major (with an emphasis in sound) at Illinois State University.
