Regatta considers a move, Le Bec-Fin readies for new ownership

    Good morning, Feeders!

    Our reporters today are looking into changes at some local institutions.

    Peter Crimmins is heading to Le Bec-Fin this afternoon as the restaurant prepares to shut its doors and eventually re-open with new owners and a new look.
    And Lizz Fiedler is checking on the status on Schuylkill River Regatta events that may make a move. She’ll get to the bottom of this story that involves the condition of the Schuylkill banks.

    Peter will also get us a preview of tonight’s Sixers game, during which fans will get a piece of the court Wilt Chamberlan scored 100 points on. We’ll look back at Chamberlain’s role with the team.

    Carolyn Beeler will have a follow-up story on the “Black Madam,” the differences between legal and illegal cosmetic injections and why these cases are difficult to pursue.

    Look for those stories today and more details this evening on NewsWorks Tonight.
