After the Christmas Holiday, Greg Bishop is back on air to talk about a big personal announcement, the most impacting stories of 2013, new laws for Illinois and a preview of Springfield's budget for the coming fiscal year! That's all ahead with Bishop On Air from 10 to noon only on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield!
Springfield's budget workshops are coming up and that means some extra time at city hall for this reporter. In the meantime, a draft budget is being circulated amongst city officials. We'll hear from a couple of those city officials today during the show, including Budget Director Bill McCarty at the top of the show and Ward 7 Alderman Joe McMenamin after 10:30. Be sure to tune in for this preview of Springfield's next budget today with Bishop On Air!
Illinois will see over 200 new laws take effect next year. We'll run down some of the big ones that you should know about, including the cellphone hands-free law, cigarette butts as litter and the speed limit increase. Those are just a few, but we'll go through a few more and take your calls in reaction to the glut of new laws!
Be sure to take the survey we put together for the show, a survey that asks you about the impact of certain stories on your life. You can take the survey about national and central Illinois stories here. We'll take a look overall at the stories in the survey and go over some of the other suggestions that could make the list. Come Monday, we'll run through the top 5 national and top 5 central Illinois stories with Bishop On Air on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield!
After revealing earlier this week that there will be a big personal announcement, today is the day it will be publicly announced. Is it a career move, a health issue, or something else? Don't miss the big announcement at the tail end of the show today!
