8/31/2018: Media Roundtable; London Brown

Our Friday Media Roundtable on First Coast Connect featured Florida Times-Union reporter David Bauerlein, radio host Angela Spears, WJCT contributor Charles Griggs and Jacksonville Business Journal editor Timothy Gibbons.

Our topics included:

  • After a bloody weekend in Jacksonville with shootings at a Raines-Lee High football game and at The Jacksonville Landing local officials and community activists called for more changes aimed at reducing gun violence in the city.
  • In a major upset Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum won the Democratic nomination for Governor over four far more funded opponents while Congressman Ron DeSantis rode an endorsement by President Trump to a strong win for the Republican nomination (01:05).       

Ahead of his weekend appearance at The Jacksonville Comedy Club we spoke with actor and comedian London Brown (46:00).
