A Super Bowl's Impact

On February 1, the Tampa Bay area plays host to its fourth Super Bowl, and organizers say it could not come at a better time. The state and local economy is hurting, and the Tampa Bay Super Bowl Host Committee says the game will be a much-needed boost to the area. Preliminary figures suggest Super Bowl XLIII will bring $300 million to the Bay area. But despite reports that put the economic impact of the game at $500 million last year in Arizona and $463 million in Miami the year before, some economists argue those numbers are over-inflated. This week, join us as we explore the lasting impact of hosting a Super Bowl in Tampa.
