Austin Monitor Radio: The Convention Center

Friday, April 5, 2019 by Austin Monitor

Confused by all the talk about whether or not to expand the convention center? Fear not, the Austin Monitor has you covered. In this throwback episode (which was recorded prior to the release of the University of Texas report), we look at the pros and cons of expanding the Austin Convention Center. Former mayoral aide Jim Wick lays out the argument in favor of expansion, and Andrew Wheat, with Save Our Springs, argues against in a lively discussion moderated by Austin Monitor reporter Jack Craver.

Austin Monitor Radio is produced in partnership with KOOP 91.7 FM.

The Austin Monitor’s work is made possible by donations from the community. Though our reporting covers donors from time to time, we are careful to keep business and editorial efforts separate while maintaining transparency.
