Around Akron With Blue Green

This monthly half-hour series, is the work of Akron producer Blue Green, who says, “The goal of the show is to shine a spotlight on all of the good things that Akron has to offer.” Green noted that the city of Akron is a wonderful place in which to live, work, stay and play, but he feels “to truly be a great city, we need our own Akron-based news and local television programming.”

Each show consists of four stories, including segments on dining, arts and culture, history, business, and movers and shakers.
