Stacey Bennett

Two billion-dollar projects hit the news in the same week: the Duval County jail and the Jaguars' stadium. Our panel discusses both.

From the threat of closing schools to a proposal for a new jail and a deal for a renovated Jaguars stadium, our panel discusses the week’s biggest headlines.


  • Keitha Nelson, First Coast News anchor.
  • John Daigle, former reporter, political consultant and owner of Daigle Creative.
  • Ben Becker, anchor and investigative reporter at Action News Jax.
  • Jack Webb, attorney and former Jacksonville City Council president.

Then, we welcome WJCT’s own Al Pete of The Neighborhood. He joins us for a Jacksonville Music Experience DJ Session, featuring Come Back by Bruce V Allen, Guava by Blue Lab Beats and Trust by Rakei Jordan.
