01/29/16: Media Roundtable Week In Review; Pangolin Conservation; Jazz On The Bridge


We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Paula Horvath, Florida Times-Union columnist; Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; A.G. Gancarski, Florida Politics writer; and WJCT analyst John Burr.

Topics include the CBS News investigation into the Wounded Warrior Project's spending, a new proposed constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana in the state, and more.

We speak with Justin Miller of the St. Augustine-based group Pangolin Conservation about their efforts to raise awareness about the mammal considered the world's most illegally traded animal.

The third annual "Jazz on the Bridge" event to benefit the nonprofit The Bridge of Northeast Florida takes place next week at the downtown Hyatt. We get a preview from Shariffa Spicer, CEO of the Bridge of Northeast Florida, and comedian Adrian "A-Train" Smith, who is co-hosting the event.
