As I mentioned last week
, the PBS show NewsHour with Jim Lehrer
is in town this week for a "City Spotlight" feature on St. Louis.
Tonight correspondent Gwen Ifill hosts a forum discussing downtown St. Louis gentrification. Tomorrow she leads a "town hall" meeting on President Barack Obama's first 100 days in office.
What I didn't note last week was that apparently the NewsHour
crew also plans to provide arts coverage of St. Louis.
Per the show's art blog
, they've already checked out a Chuck Berry show at Blueberry Hill. They're also planning to visit the Third Degree Glass Factory
, The Black Rep
and interview poet Carl Phillips
What? No visit to wrestling at South Broadway Athletic Club
!? Must be a programming oversight.
