In the guest chair:
Wilma Sothern, VP of Marketing at Central Atlanta Progress joined me today as our official “Atlanta Insider”. We discussed the streetcar from both a safety and a connectivity perspective, as well as the Run the Rails 5K that will give people a chance to run the streetcar route before the line is up and active. We also talked about the new “Be Downtown” campaign, Downtown Steak Week and the Pop-Up Shops that will be up and running all summer long.
In the headlines:
- V. Stiviano – Donald Sterling’s self proclaimed confidant and Silly Rabbit is now under investigation by the LA District Attorney’s office for blackmail. We catch you up on that…
- Hollywood is taking notice of our little town – and maybe shaking in their Jimmy Choos a little bit. The LA Times did a story yesterday about Georgia giving Hollywood a run for its money.
- And it’s not just the movies and TV, our tourism industry is booming as well. More good news for Atlanta and Georgia.
- And yesterday we shared a story about WRAS 88.5 changing formats during the day to a news/talk format through an agreement with Georgia Public Broadcasting. Well, there’s a lot more to this story than I knew yesterday.
