Who’s Really In Charge of ‘The New’ Sci-Port? [VIDEO]
Jake Wood, spokesman for the Planet Aqua Group, talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about reports that PAG will no longer oversee the refurbishment of downtown Shreveport's Sci-Port Discovery Center.
Wood tells KEEL listeners that The Times story that PAG is "out as Sci-Port manager" is untrue. The financially trouble facility announced in late summer that it had reached an agreement with Planet Aqua to take over management - including improvements - of the science museum. PAG also owns and operates the recently opened Shreveport Aquarium, located downtown on the riverfront.
Wood also talks about rumored financial troubles at the new aquarium and the "restructuring" of SALT, the restaurant associated with the aquarium.
