WGLT's The Leadoff - Monday 4/18/22

WGLT's the Leadoff is everything you need to know for Monday, April 18, 2022. A drag show and a pet fashion show will be among the Humane Society of Central Illinois' fundraising events. The Normal Town Council will decide tonight on whether to partner with a Cedar Falls, Iowa-based developer on a Trail East and Trail West project. Plus, Rivian has already hired over 5,000 people in Normal, quickly becoming McLean County’s second-largest employer. But now comes the hard part: keeping them.

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.
