ONLY ON 3 AT 6: What Winston-Salem learned about building stadiums
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The City of Winston-Salem is looking to unload two stadiums it built decades ago. Both Joel Coliseum, where Wake Forest plays basketball, and Bowman Gray Stadium, where Winston-Salem State plays, is costing the city $850,000 a year for the last five years to operate. Plus the city pays $1.5 million a year for debt payments.
We’ll ask city leaders what they’ve learned over the years owning two stadiums, and what advice they have for members of the Wilmington City Council, which is looking to build a $40+ million ballpark downtown.
Cliff went to Winston-Salem today to talk with the city manager and the mayor. See what wisdom they have to share, tonight ONLY ON WWAY NEWSCHANNEL 3 AT 6.
