Friday Forum

WNIJ's Friday Forum features  in-depth interviews with state officials, community leaders, and others whose decisions influence your life. You can hear it every Friday during Morning Edition on 89.5 FM and WNIJ.org.

U.S. Congress

We kick off a new series on WNIJ this morning: the Friday Forum. Today, we catch up with two members of the U.S. House from northern Illinois, just as the 115th Congress is getting underway. 

Republican Adam Kinzinger represents the 16th district, which stretches from the Wisconsin state line to the Indiana state line. It includes portions of Rockford, DeKalb, and Dixon. Democrat Cheri Bustos represents the 17th district. She just started her third term representing the western Illinois area that runs along the Mississippi River and reaches into portions of Rockford and Peoria.

More news about state and regional government and politics.

That was one highlight from a recent survey of WNIJ listeners. And it makes sense, because research shows public radio listeners pay close attention to the words and actions of elected and appointed officials.

With this in mind, WNIJ News is launching a new series called Friday Forum.  It will feature in-depth interviews with state officials, community leaders, and others whose decisions influence your life.

WNIJ's Director and General Manager, Staci Hoste, is proud of this weekly segment:
