Wednesday on Lake Effect: Special Ed Funding, 'Da Crusher' Statue, Chris Multerer, Fred Foster

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

The Wisconsin Policy Forum looks at the challenges facing funding for special education in Wisconsin. Then, we learn about the project to build a statue memorializing South Milwaukee native, and pro-wrestler, Reggie “Da Crusher” Lisowski. Plus, we revisit a conversation with another Milwaukee native, Chris Multerer, who was a pro-wrestling "job man" for 25 years. And we’ll remember a Wisconsin business and theater icon, Fred Foster, who died last week.

  • Chris Smith, organizer of the “Da Crusher” statue
  • Chris Multerer, author and retired pro-wrestler
