On today’s edition of The Open Forum on 1540 AM WADK Newport, I chatted about the marathon scenario, what to do this weekend, Newport Film and Celebrity Tour and about the Presidential Preference Primary.

Tammy Fasano stopped by the studio at 1pm to chat with Ryan about the Newport Film & Celebrity Tour.

Nellie Gorbea, Rhode Island’s Secretary of State, called to the show to discuss Tuesday’s Presidential Preference Primary.
