Here is the Radio Boston rundown for July 28, 2021. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- The federal eviction moratorium ends this Saturday. What does it mean for renters and landlords, particularly with an uncertain future in this still ongoing pandemic? We speak with Rachel Heller, CEO of the Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association, and Douglas Quattrochi, executive director of MassLandlords.
- Home to the most valuable commercial fishing port in the world, covering the news in New Bedford has been a struggle as of late. The shrinking newspaper of record, the Standard-Times, once had almost 60 full-time staff, but has fewer than 15 today. We speak with Stephen Taylor, a former Boston Globe executive, and editor Barbara Roessner about a new non-profit newsroom: the New Bedford Light.
- We hear from WBUR's Callum Borchers on reactions to the CDC's new guidance on masking and how Governor Charlie Baker is responding. And we check in with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren on student loan debt, COVID-19 and voting rights.
