Tim Towey joined Ryan Belmore today for his weekly co-hosting appearance on What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK Newport.

Among the variety of topics that Tim and Ryan hit on was the recent news that the Tiverton casino hopes to open on September 1st, one month earlier than expected.

With several questions on the project and the casino in the air, the guys reached out to John Edwards, Vice Chair of Tiverton Town Council, and offered him the opportunity to call in. John talked about the casino and what else is happening in the town of Tiverton.
