04/24/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; Women2Women Tour; Beaches And Riverside Fine Arts Event

Media Roundtable Week in Review Logo

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Larry Hannan, Florida-Times Union reporter; Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; A.G. Gancarski, Folio Weekly and Florida Politics columnist; and Staci Spanos, WJXT anchor.

Topics include the 2015 Jacksonville mayoral race, UNF president and former mayor John Delaney endorsing candidate Lenny Curry, Mayor Alvin Brown ordering a review of the city's discrimination prevention laws, and more.

We also roundup the strange, bizarre and just plain ridiculous news from across the Sunshine State in our Only in Florida segment

Women2Women Tour founder Sarah Chamberlain joins us to discuss the group's event in Amelia Island this week. Women2Women airms to inspire and engage local women to vote and take part in elections.

And we speak with Riverside Fine Arts Executive Director Stacy Aubrey about the special performance by singer and actress Rene Marie at UNF this week. This event will benefit both Riverside Fine Arts and Beaches Fine Arts.
