AKIN AHEAD: With a little more than six weeks before Election Day, a new poll out this week shows Missouri Republican U-S Senate candidate Todd Akin with a 4-point lead over Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill. We get the latest on the most competitive race in our region.
OBAMA & THE KANSAS BALLOT: Kansas attracts national attention as a state panel weighs up whether the President’s name can even be listed on the November election ballot in the Sunflower state.
AEG UP FOR SALE: The Los Angeles based entertainment corporation owns the Staples Center, but also Sprint Center right here in Kansas City. The news brought up questions this week about what that breaking business story would mean for our city-owned downtown arena which opened in October 2007 and is currently listed as the 4th busiest entertainment venue in the United States in overall ticket sales. Does the sale of AEG have a ripple effect here in Kansas City?
KAUFFMAN CENTER @ ONE YEAR: It’s been exactly a year now since the curtain opened on the much anticipated $415 million Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The downtown venue designed by Moshie Safdie has quickly garnered both national and international attention. Many of the center’s shows have earned rave reviews and there have been countless sold out performances. But one year on, is it meeting expectations? And what about the future?
