08/14/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; "Good For You" Event; Canary In The Coalmine

Media Roundtable Week in Review Logo

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Mark Woods, Florida Times-Union columnist; Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; Tim Gibbons, Jacksonville Business Journal editor; and Claire Goforth, Folio Weekly writer.

Topics include the Florida Legislature's special session to overhaul the state's congressional districts, the St. Johns Riverkeeper filing a lawsuit over the proposed St. Johns River deepening project, and more.

We speak with Leslie Spencer, Associate State Director for Advocacy for AARP, about the organization's "Life Reimagined" initiative. Spencer will be one of the featured speakers at WJCT & Baptist Health's "Good For You" event.

And Jacksonville Americana and folk band Canary in the Coalmine performs live in our studio. They will open for country star Jim Lauderdale at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall this week.
