12/18/15: Media Roundtable Year In Review; Free Cab Rides On New Year's; Jason Woods

We discuss the top local news stories of 2015 with our roundtable of journalists: Dan Scanlan, Florida Times-Union reporter; Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; and WJCT analyst John Burr.

Topics include the Jacksonville mayoral election, the city's human rights ordinance, efforts to develop the Shipyards property in downtown, and more.

The Farah & Farah law firm's new Keep Jax Safe initiativewill provide free cab rides for the entire city on New Year's Eve to help cut down on the number of drunk drivers on the road. Attorney Eddie Farah joins us with more.

And local actor and playwright Jason Woods joins us with a preview of his one-man show adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol," staging next week at the WJCT studios.
