Coming up on Indiana Newsdesk:

The state is pumping millions of dollars into improving broadband access in rural areas. It’s an idea that has a lot of support, but making it happen won’t be easy. Coming up, rural broadband – the economic possibilities and a look at some of the potential hurdles.

Jail overcrowding is a statewide – even national problem. Ahead, a look at the fix one local county is considering.

And former Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton served as vice chair of the 9/11 commission that investigated the September 11th attacks. Coming up, why he says the threat of global extremism is worse today than 17 years ago.
