Each week, In Touch, our public affairs show takes a look at issues in the Hudson Valley.  We talk to the news makers in the region to get an in depth preservative on these issues.

This week, we take a sightly different approach to exploring the issues.  Our guest is the Hudson River.  With the help of the Department of Environmental Conservation of New York and information posted on their website.  Plus interviews conducted fisherman that once worked on the Hudson River conducted by the Hudson River Maritime Museum in Kingston.

We discuss:
