- Inside the Headlines - Jp Sottile

Hey all, it's the end of the week. That means it's time to go INSIDE THE HEADLINES with Newsvandal JP Sottile and station manager James Moore. We appreciate the feedback this week from a dear listener who says she and her father never miss the show!

This week's three tiers include NATOing the Line;  Playing Fast and Loose with Food; and Follow the Leader, i.e., monkey see, monkey doo doo, as it were.
