On Deck - Monday, December 14, 2020

WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Monday, December 14, 2020. Our top story is about how the first batch of COVID-19 vaccines is expected to arrive in Central Illinois very soon.  You'll also hear how it's not just high school athletes feeling the scholarship pinch during the pandemic. The culinary team at Woodruff Career and Technical Center took first place in the restaurant management category at the Illinois ProStart Invitational last March, just days before the governor's first stay-at-home order. That win secured them a handful of small scholarships and a chance to compete at the national competition in Washington D.C. over the summer.  But the continuation of pandemic lockdowns prompted the cancellation of the national competition, and the coveted scholarship opportunities that go with it.

Daniel joined WCBU with eight years of experience in public radio, primarily in operations and engineering. He is also an accomplished DJ, with over 20 years of experience at night clubs and special events including the world-renowned John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the U.S. State Department, the White House, and the 2013 Commander in Chief Inaugural Ball.
