About the Show

Is the civic investment in new arenas and stadia demanded by owners of professional sports teams worth it?Ê What should a city demand in return -- a winning team, an ironclad lease, civic commitments by the ownership group and its players?

Does a major league team make a city major league?

Those are some of the questions we'll explore on this week's "Smart City."Ê It airs Sunday, March 18, at 9 a.m. CST on the WKNO stations (91.1 in Memphis).Ê "Smart City" can also be heard live at WKNOFM.
