The pastor of one of Bloomington-Normal's largest congregations ignited controvesy in 2017 with a sermon that criticized non-traditional families and suggested homosexuality is a choice. The pushback to Pastor Mike Baker of Eastview Christian Church was one of the top stories listened to on GLT this year. Others include the investigative series Landlord V Tenant, The struggle to improve police and resident relations with a Citizen Review Board, Criminal Charges against former Bloomington Coliseum Managers, and more.
