Pop-up businesses

There is some interesting economic news in Delaware this week. Pop-up businesses are a big part of the small business economy. First Look this week introduces us to some of the entrepreneurs who will benefit from the upcoming holiday season and help fill vacancies in commercial real estate.

First Person: Charlie Copeland

A week after the elections the GOP holds not one, but two statewide offices, and three more seats in the General Assembly. What do these wins mean and what changed this election cycle? Here to help answer those questions and more is Delaware’s Republican Party leader, Charlie Copeland.

First Experience: High flying adventure

One of the major television networks is airing a live production of Peter Pan this fall. First Experience does that production one better this week. We visit the Cab Calloway School of the Arts; they just finished a multi-million dollar renovation to their theater. We go behind the scenes of Cab’s Peter Pan production to show all the theater has to offer.


A unique exhibit of African American artists are now on display at the University of Delaware through December 7th. First contributor Karen Smyles is here with the story of Renderings. It is a collection of contemporary artists whose works question, define and reconsider the historic role of memory in image making.

Content Delaware

Since we have an arts and culture theme going here, let’s turn back to the theater. For that we are going to call on our video partner, Content Delaware. They take us behind the scenes at the Delaware Theatre Company.
