90.7 WMFE launches new show: Florida Roundup
90.7 WMFE is proud to announce the launch of its newest show, The Florida Roundup.
Each week Melissa Ross of WJCT in Jacksonville and Tom Hudson of WLRN in Miami, along with a panel of journalists from around the state, discuss the week in Florida news in The Florida Roundup. That means politics, education, the environment and more.
The show will be broadcast on 90.7 WMFE at noon every Friday starting Oct. 5.
In its first week going to a statewide broadcast, The Florida Roundup will talk with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum about health insurance and paying teachers $50-thousand dollars a year.
The show will visit with reporter Steve Newborn from the studio of WUSF in Tampa to talk about Republican Ron DeSantis’ most recent stop on his campaign for governor and compare and contrast it with Gillum’s campaign.
Also, the first debate between Governor Rick Scott and Senator Bill Nelson has turned nasty. Will it turn off voters? The show will discuss the implications for the election and taking your calls to join in on the discussion at 305-995-1800.
