Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Feb. 27. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We begin with WBUR's Callum Borchers at PAX East, which hosts the biggest names in gaming. But this year, Sony is missing due to concerns about the spreading coronavirus. We also talk larger economic concerns about the virus.
  • Remembering Steve Ross, the Holocaust survivor who helped found the New England Holocaust Memorial in Boston. He died Monday.
  • A new development and housing project has divided Newton. We hear from both sides of the issues, and we speak with Newton Mayor Ruthanne Fuller.

This program aired on February 27, 2020.
