Today’s What’sUpNewp Radio ranged from talking about the upcoming visit of the World’s Largest Viking Ship, to Newport Pell Bridge’s 50th Anniversary, to a conversation with Patti Doyle about the future of Newport Grand and the Tiverton Casino.

Patti joined me at 1:30 pm (halfway through the program) and chats about the closure of Newport Grand on August 28th, the opening of the Tiverton casino on September 1st, and more.
