Radio Times is broadcasting live this week from the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia, the site of the Democratic National Convention. We’ll start our week of coverage from the Democratic National Convention with a local take on the event. We’ll discuss the city’s planning for the gathering, the cost, and what local politicians are thinking. We’ll be joined on Radio Row by JULIA TERRUSO, a staff writer at The Philadelphia Inquirer, and HOLLY OTTERBEIN, deputy news director at Philadelphia Magazine and editor of the Citified blog. Then we speak with Philadelphia Mayor JIM KENNEY about how the city has readied itself for the proceedings and to see what he’s looking forward to in the week ahead. And, we’ll speak with former Pennsylvania Governor and host committee chair of the DNC ED RENDELL to talk about his role in the convention.
