Philly news roundup: Elmer Smith, Marcia Gelbart & Ben Waxman

June 18, 2010


Hour 1

On this week’s Radio Times journalists’ roundtable, we turn our focus to goings-on in the city of Philadelphia. Guest host CHRIS SATULLO will talk to a talented trio of local journalists: Philadelphia Daily News columnist ELMER SMITH, It’s Our Money blogger BEN WAXMAN of the Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, and Philadelphia Inquirer City Hall Bureau Chief MARCIA GELBART. Among the topics they might touch upon are the city budget, as well as the big-picture fiscal issues that aren’t part of the budget process; row offices and the sheriff succession; party politicking in both local Dems and GOP; ethics and City Council; the scandal over the Family Court construction project and possible conflicts of interest; casino developments; municipal labor contracts; and an early preview of the next mayor’s race.
