This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 9. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • With changes to federal immigration policy announced last week, we check in with immigrant advocates in our community on what the changes mean.
  • From the Newsroom: Starting this year, Massachusetts raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour. It's one of the highest minimum wages in the country. But is it enough to live here? We take a look at the gap between the minimum and living wage.
  • Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest on nationally televised Monday Night Football last week. While Hamlin recovers, we discuss the NFL's public relations, ratings and viewer numbers, and the local implications for youth sports.

This program aired on January 9, 2023.
