Economic Power of Sporting Events

  Sporting events such as the Western & Southern Tennis Tournament, the Flying Pig Marathon, and the NCAA Hockey Regionals are not only big draws for participants and fans, they are also powerful economic generators for the region, bringing millions of dollars into Greater Cincinnati each year. Joining us to discuss how important these events are to the local economy are Greater Cincinnati Sports Corporation Executive Director Leslie Spencer,  Elizabeth Chaney Young, director of Membership & Marketing for the National Association of Sports Commissions, and Will Sikes, director of Marketing and Communications for the Western & Southern Open Tennis Tournament.
