Ballpark opponent states his case after proponent backs out of on-air debate
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — When it comes to bringing a ballpark to Wilmington, everyone has an opinion, but there are two particular groups that are not shy about voicing theirs.
WWAY had two guests confirmed to join Ashley Jacobs on “Good Morning Carolina” today for a live debate on the issue, but a representative from a pro-ballpark group backed out.
Chuck Kuebler from Port City Baseball agreed to talk about why he thinks a publicly-funded stadium is a good idea for Wilmington. However, he later contacted WWAY to say he would not be willing to come on our show. Kuebler said the group could not talk, but would not explain why.
Instead of the debate that was planned, Josh Fulton, a Wilmingtonian against a publicly-funded stadium, had the floor to himself.
