Wednesday on Lake Effect: Foxconn in Wisconsin, Eric Von Fellowship, Milwaukee's Harbor District

Wednesday on Lake Effect

Rumors that Chinese manufacturer Foxconn is considering Wisconsin for a major plant, may be just that: rumors. We speak with a reporter who has covered past plans by Foxconn that never materialized, and compare them to the current rumor. Later, plans move forward to honor the work of the late radio host Eric Von with the creation of a fellowship. And how one artist hopes to play a role in the revitalization of Milwaukee’s Harbor District.
