State Week has been produced by NPR Illinois since January 1975, created by original WSSR News Director Rich Bradley when the station went on the air. It is the longest running public affairs program on NPR Illinois and was patterned after the popular PBS show Washington Week in Review.
Sean Crawford, the NPR Illinois News Director and former Statehouse Bureau Chief, moderates the program. He is joined by a regular panel consisting of Charlie Wheeler, retired director of the Public Affairs Reporting Program at UIS, and reporters from throughout Illinois. The program provides analysis and commentary 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.
