The Talk of Connecticut


Prof. KEVIN BARRY - professor at the Quinnipiac University School of Law

Professor Barry chatted about a ruling sent down by the Connecticut State Supreme Court yesterday eliminating the state's death penalty. The decision featured some very pointed opinions on both sides, and -- in part -- shoots down a "compromise" death penalty elimination passed back in2012.    


"Arts Across Connecticut" with DOUG EVANS

 Doug talked about all of the shows playing in CT and in NYC. He also told us about his adventures at Graceland in Tennessee and some interesting television programming coming our way!


 SCOTT OGRANEK - Director, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals - Connecticut Children's Medical Center

Scott stopped by to talk about the total raised from Thursday's CCMC Radiothon, which exceeded last year's amount raised- around $119,000!


LEN SUZIO - former Meriden GOP state senator and current member of the Victim Advocate Advisory Committee


Former State Senator Len Suzio --a leading critic of Connecticut’s controversial “Early Release” program-- announced that a partial review of the more than 30,000 convicts granted early release from Connecticut prisons indicates that 35 were incarcerated for murders and homicides following their prison discharge. "Between May 18, 2012 and April 28, 2015, a period of less than 36 months, Early Release convicts were being re-incarcerated at the rate of almost 1 every month for killing another innocent victim. This startling statistic belies the catastrophic failure of Connecticut’s fatally flawed Early Release Program."


 "Weekending in Connecticut" with MEAGAN OCCHIOGROSSO

Meagan came in for her weekly segment talking about all the fun things happening this weekend including the Milford Oyster Festival (30,000 oysters will be there!).That is a FREE admission event!


 Fox News Radio's EBEN BROWN - live from Havana, Cuba


Eben was on hand this morning in Havana as the U.S. Embassy opens there for the first time in decades. It's all part of renewed relations between the U.S. and Cuba. Secretary of State John Kerry is the first U.S. secretary to travel to Cuba in 60 years. He'll formally re-designate the "U.S. Interests Section" in Havana as the "U.S. Embassy Havana." The American flag will be raised at around 9:45 a.m. Eastern.
