Daily Local News – October 12, 2017


The Indiana state legislature has banned the use of rifles for deer hunting on public land; Bloomington City Council members have approved an increase in funding to the Central Emergency Dispatch Center for 2018.

Jar Turner started his career at WFHB as a volunteer in 2011. Soon after coming aboard, he became a paid production manager here and then, in August, 2016, he took over as General Manager of Bloomington’s community radio station. One of his ?rst acts as GM was to dissolve his old position of production manager in an e?ort to save money. Jar talks about what community radio is and the challenges of keeping it funded and on the air as he joins Michael Glab on this week’s edition of Big Talk.

This week’s edition asks Bloomington residents their opinion about the Catalonian Referendum on Independence from the Kingdom of Spain.
