KPBS Midday Edition


KPBS Midday Edition is a daily talk show hosted by Maureen Cavanaugh and Jade Hindmon, keeping San Diegans in the know on everything from politics to the arts. While Governor Gavin Newsom hasn’t ordered San Diego County to close certain indoor businesses, the county plans to enforce new health restrictions. Plus, the spread of COVID-19 in Imperial County has been the focus of statewide concern. Also, a KPBS analysis found Black youth are more likely to be detained by San Diego Unified Police than their white peers. In addition, San Diego officials are optimistic that a long-term fix to stop persistent cross-border sewage flows is close. Finally, Mitch Silverstein of the San Diego chapter of the Surfrider Foundation joins Midday Edition to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the group’s yearly cleanup and plastic pollution in general.
