The Friday Pitch-In

Nov 13, 2020

Positive cases of COVID-19, as well as hospitalization rates, have reached a new high this week. As a result, Gov. Eric Holcomb is setting new restrictions on select counties. And protesters in Indianapolis are reacting to the decision not to indict the officer who killed Dreasjon Reed. Today we get updates on these stories and more.

We also talk about Indiana’s voter turnout. Turnout was at a record high last week, but plenty of Hoosiers still abstained from voting. And we learn more about plans for the Indy Jazz Fest going virtual this year.

Produced by Matt Pelsor.
