State Week has been produced by WUIS since January 1975, created by original WUIS News Director Rich Bradley when the station went on the air. It is the longest running public affairs program on WUIS and was patterned after the popular PBS show Washington Week in Review.
WUIS' Bill Wheelhouse moderates the program. He is joined by a regular panel consisting of Charles Wheeler, Director of the Public Affairs Reporting Program at UIS, WUIS Statehouse Bureau Chief Amanda Vinicky, and WUIS/Illinois Issues reporter Brian Mackey. This regular panel is joined by one or two guest journalists each week to analyze and comment on the top news stories of the week in Illinois state government and politics.
State Week is made available to all public radio stations in Illinois and is also available as a podcast.
