Thanksgiving is this Thursday. What is your Thanksgiving going to look like? 

This hour, we focus on gratitude. Despite this chaotic, hard year, we want to know what you’re thankful for this year. Coming up, we talk about how we can all practice being a little bit more grateful, even during a pandemic.

Where We Live - today, we really want to hear from you! Tell us what you are grateful for this year. Is it your family and friends? Our healthcare workers or even just being able video chat with those we love, even when we are social distancing?  Call us at 888-720-9677.

  • In Connecticut, 95% of the state's entire population has received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, 80.1% are fully vaccinated, and 52.6% have a booster shot according to CDC data.
  • Federal lawmakers will vote in the coming days on the bipartisan Safer Communities Act that includes gun reforms championed by U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy from Connecticut. It would expand background checks for people under 21, offer federal funds to help states take away guns from holders at risk of hurting themselves or others, and give the federal government more power to tackle gun trafficking. A sticking point in recent federal negotiations for gun reform was an attempt by Democratic U.S. senators to close the so-called "boyfriend loophole" that allows unmarried abusers to get guns. U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut says the agreement may not close the loophole, but it will “substantially shrink” it.
  • Connecticut Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy say they’ve reached a bipartisan agreement that’ll yield at least 10 Republican votes for federal gun legislation. The deal includes federal prosecution for those who make “straw” purchases, made on behalf of those who cannot legally buy them; funding for states to enact and enforce red flag laws that temporarily take guns away from high-risk owners; and an effort to give law enforcement more time to do background checks on gun buyers under 21 years old.
