On Deck - Thursday, October 29, 2020

WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Thursday, October 29, 2020. Our top story is about how the Illinois High School Association is defying Governor J.B. Pritzker's order to put all winter sports on hold. The IHSA decided basketball will go on as scheduled starting in late November. You'll also hear how in compliance with a state law requiring inclusive history lesson plans, Peoria Public Schools will begin using the Legacy Project curriculum for high schools next spring. The free curriculum developed in Chicago will teach students about LGBTQ figures in U.S. history.

Daniel joined WCBU with eight years of experience in public radio, primarily in operations and engineering.

Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the U.S. State Department, the White House, and the 2013 Commander in Chief Inaugural Ball.
