Listen to NEPR's Special Event: Springfield's Big Gamble

NEPR and the New England News Collaborative hosted a lively discussion on June 19, 2018, with some of the region's top reporters on the casino beat.

As MGM Springfield barrels toward its planned August opening and the Mashantucket Mohegan Connecticut Venture gets ready to go all-in on a gaming facility across the state line, the reporters and audience members talked about what it means for the region.

The event took place at Valley Venture Mentors in downtown Springfield and was the latest installment of NEPR's News & Brews series. The discussion was moderated by John Dankosky, executive editor of the New England News Collaborative and host of the radio program and podcast NEXT.
