On Wednesday night, on Comedy Central, the jabs began. As comedian Jon Stewart and one of his Daily Show correspondents discussed how Republican candidates are vying for the "coveted God endorsement," Stewart wondered whether God would be in Tampa come the August convention. "Have you been to Tampa?" asked correspondent Wyatt Cenac. "That place is a s- - -hole." It sure didn't feel that way Thursday morning on the riverfront, where it was a sunny, no-coat-necessary 57 degrees. Could the New Yorkers be jealous? Dick Greco to launch weekly radio show Tampa's longest-serving mayor will take on a new role starting Monday when he goes from interviewee to interviewer. The News Hour with Dick Greco will air from Malio's Prime Steakhouse at noon every Monday on AM 820 News. Greco's show will be co-hosted by Dan Maduri, and will feature appearances from newsmakers such as Mayor Bob Buckhorn, the show's first scheduled guest. "If something of interest happens in the Tampa Bay area, we're going to have them on, and it's basically going to be their show," Greco said. The four-term mayor ran for an unprecedented fifth term last year, but Buckhorn defeated him.
