U.S. Whitewater Center


U.S. Whitewater Center The Whitewater Center, regarded as a crown jewel by supporters, is drowning in red ink. Critics say the business plan was ill-conceived and the center is awash in debt, owing upwards of 38 million dollars. We'll talk with the Executive Director of the Center, a member of the US Olympic Committee that sees the center as a valuable resource, and to a County Commissioner with a whole new plan to try and save the center. 

Guests Jeff Wise - Executive Director, Whitewater Center David Yarborough - CEO, USA Canoe/Kayak & member, US Olympic Committee Bill James - County Commissioner, 6th District
