The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom:

What’s known as the “silver tsunami,” the wave of growth in the over-60 population is the focus of a national conference this weekend in Dallas. And the story of the “Lost Michaelango,” a painting that much of the art world once considered a fake. Hear about the Kimbell’s quest to get it.

You can listen to the segment weekdays at 6:20 p.m. and 8:20 a.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
