News broke this week that the Ballpark at Harbor Yard will be transformed into an outdoor concert venue. On Wednesday, Aug. 9, we speak with Howard Saffan, a developer on the project. Saffan is also owner of the SportsCenter of Connecticut in Shelton.
Saffan talks with host Kate Czaplinski about the plan, which was announced by Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim on Monday. He discusses the design, construction start date and muscial acts he hopes to attract in the future.
Watch the interview below:
Later in the show, we talk about a recent dedication to the late State Rep. Terry Backer and a letter from Hartford to municipal leaders that is causing some concern.
Finally, Editorial Cartoonist Doug Smith joins us for Drawing Conclusions.
