State Week in Review has been produced by WUIS since January 1975, created by original WUIS News Director Rich Bradley when the station went on the air. It is the longest running public affairs program on WUIS and was patterned after the popular PBS show Washington Week in Review.
Morning Edition anchor and former Statehouse Bureau Chief Bill Wheelhouse moderates the program. He is joined by a regular panel consisting of Charles Wheeler, Director of the Public Affair Reporting Program at UIS, WUIS News Director Sean Crawford, and WUIS Statehouse Chief Amanda Vinicky. This regular panel is joined by one or two guest journalists each week to analyze and comment on the top news stories of the week in Illinois state government and politics.
State Week in Review is broadcast on WUIS at 12:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Friday and at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday every week.
Essential podcast, inconsistent iTunes
This great podcast about Illinois politics comes out every week. But it doesn’t appear on iTunes every week. They can’t seem to get that part right. I download it from their web page when it doesn’t come up on the feed.
Problems with playing the audio.
Don't like the new system; I can't stop/pause and re-start the audio.
