Media Roundtable

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Ron Littlepage, Florida Times-Union columnist; Tim Gibbons, Jacksonville Business Journal editor; Claire Goforth, Folio Weekly editor; and A.G. Gancarski, Florida Politics writer.

Topics include the Florida Ethics Commission into Public Defender Matt Shirk, the state attorney's race, and more.

Women's Food Alliance  

The food industry in Northeast Florida and surrounding 10 counties is continuing to explode with talent, creativity and passion in careers that revolve in and around food, beverage and hospitality.

Enhancing that talent is the mission of the Women’s Food Alliance, which works to advance networking, education, and collaboration for women in the culinary and hospitality industries here on the First Coast.

We speak with Women's Food Alliance founder Leigh Cort and member Anne Urban, owner of CenterStage Entertainment and Destination Planning Services.

Joey O'Hern

Occasional entertainment commentator Joey O'Hern joins us with his take on this weekend's 70th Annual Tony Awards and the variety of productions currently on Broadway.
