Please consider this an early version of what we hope to grow into a larger edition of The News Roundtable. 
  • We’re recapping the top stories of the past seven days as decided by you. We look at both the “hits” we received on Hometown Headlines each day as well as the Facebook numbers. We also provide brief updates to those stories if they’ve advanced a bit since first reported on Hometown Headlines.
  • We also recap our Druck Report interviews of the week, one with Todd Wofford and Jim Alred of Rome Floyd Parks & Rec as well as another with Jay Shell of Rome City Brewing Co. Both are available on our website and on any of the nine podcast platforms we frequent. All are free and on demand.
  • We record our long-form interviews in the podcast center at Brand Red Studios in downtown Rome. 
We close with what’s on our news radar for the week ahead — and we’re in for a busy week.
