Riverfront Times staff writer Kristen Hinman appears on the Charlie Brennan Show at 10 a.m. today on KMOX. You can hear her interview at www.kmox.com.

Hinman speaks about her stories on the dispute between unions and the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission -- and what conventioneers really think about St. Louis' accommodations. Hinman acquired exit surveys from the CVC through Missouri Sunshine Law requests. Those documents were made available to all here on the Stlog on Monday.

The three PDF documents below contain the nine exit surveys Hinman received (with some information redacted by the CVC).

On Friday, Hinman blogged about how the union lockout at America's Center had escalated. Read the CVC's press release, issued after the unions put out their own release, titled, "Fact Sheet on Lockout of IBEW Local One and IATSE Locals 6 and 143 (the “Local Unions”) Illegally Imposed by St. Louis CVC."

Hinman investigated the dispute in the RFT's May 2007 cover story, "Bad Blood."

Also up for interview today on Brennan is John Larry Ray, brother of James Earl Ray. Read our interview with Ray in this week's cover story by Ellis Conklin.
