It was the Discover Newport edition of The Open Forum on AM 1540 WADK on Monday and I filled in as host.

Andrea McHugh, Senior Communications Manager, and Evan Smith, President and CEO,  from Discover Newport were among my guests. Topics ranged from the upcoming celebration of the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Pell Bridge, to the Viking Tall Ship that’s coming to Newport this weekend, to the closure of Newport Grand, to other happenings in travel and tourism.
