In national news, President Trump told Fox News in an interview that a replacement for the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) may not become law until 2018 at the very latest; and President Trump’s new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) cancels crucial regulations on net neutrality that were once supported by the Obama administration.

*On a personal note, I am very humbled and honored to announce that I will be the WBCR News Director for the Spring 2o17 semester.
*The next time I’ll be back on the air reporting for WBCR News won’t be until three weeks from now, on Monday, February 27, 2017. This is because that there will be no school for all Brooklyn College students for the next two consecutive Mondays, February 13 and February 20, 2017, due to Lincoln’s Birthday and Presidents’ Day, respectively.
