05/01/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; Author Vic DiGenti; Moon Over Matanzas

Media Roundtable Week in Review Logo

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Topher Sanders, Florida Times-Union reporter;AG Gancarski, Folio Weekly and Florida Politics columnist;Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; and WJCT business analyst John Burr.

Topics include former candidate Bill Bishop endorsing incumbent Mayor Alvin Brown in Jacksonville's mayoral election, a state investigation of a local dentist over allegations of child abuse, and more.

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

First Coast author Vic DiGenti about his new novel, Hurricane Island, and his "Novel in a Day" workshop for aspiring writers.

And we speak with Jeff Smith, Director of Strategic Partnerships with the St. Johns Cultural Council, about the group's Moon Over Matanzas Soiree to benefit the county's ArtReaches programs.
