Groundbreaking took place Tuesday for one of two convention centers and hotels that are planned to open in Jonesboro.  The Keller Family Hotel and Convention Center project broke ground Tuesday.  It will be located along Browns Lane Access Road near I-555.  The project will consist of a 159-bed Hyatt Place Hotel and a convention center.  Plans are ongoing for the Red Wolf Hotel and Convention Center, which will consist of a 200-room Embassy Suites hotel, a convention center, and a restaurant.  That project is headed by O’Reilly Hospitality Management and it will be located near where the former track and field programs were located at Arkansas State University.  Roby Brock is with Talk Business and Politics.  He gives analysis on both projects.  Click on the Listen button for more details.
