Regionally Speaking, October 21, 2022

Today: The U.S. recently scored a C+ for Retirement Planning in comparison to other countries around the world. Northwest Indiana financial advisor Greg Hammer joins us to provide tips for our own personal retirement plans.  But up first, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The month is an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer. We’ll speak with a three time breast cancer survivor about her new foundation which aims to bring awareness by providing "family-oriented" entertainment through karaoke performances.  All of that on this edition of Regionally Speaking.
