Join NEPR and the New England News Collaborative for a lively discussion with some of the region's top reporters on the casino beat. As MGM Springfield barrels toward its planned August opening and the Mashantucket Mohegan Connecticut Venture gets ready to go all in on a gaming facility across the state line, we're looking forward to a lively discussion on what it all means for the region.
Meet us at Valley Venture Mentors in downtown Springfield for the latest installment of NEPR's News & Brews series. Have a pint, enjoy some snacks and hear from the reporters closest to the story.
Moderated by John Dankosky, executive editor of the New England News Collaborative and host of the radio program and podcast NEXT on (Saturday at 6 pm and Sundays at 10 am on the NEPR News Network).
