About the Show

College-educated young adults are very much in demand. You could call them the new buffalo being hunted by mayors and economic development officials hoping to make their cities more successful.

CEOs for Cities just commissioned , a division of Yankelovich, to conduct a first-ever study to find out where members of this coveted demographic are choosing to live and why. Meredith Gilfeather, the senior researcher on the project, will tell us whether young adults are choosing the job or the city. And we'll find out which city topped the most preferred list of cities and which city was least preferred.

Plus, we'll talk to a young entrepreneur, Megan Jones, about her experiences in starting and operating Lokion, an interactive company based in Memphis.

We find out what young adults want in cities, on the next Smart City
