I'll have more later today, but here's the press release just issued on the new show, which features former Tampa mayor Dick Greco at Malio's restaurant -- pretty much a window into the lunchtime world of the local power broker.
First guest on Monday: current mayor Bob Buckhorn. Should be interesting.
