WHAT'S THE END GOAL? In Tampa Bay, John Romano notes St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster will meet with Rays Owner Stuart Sternberg this week about the team’s stadium situation, and Foster “needs to ask: What's the endgame?” Romano: “Do you want to keep waving the lease until the day the Rays leave town, or do you want to parlay that lease into something beneficial for everyone involved?” Foster should tell Sternberg if his "business partner wants to look at sites in Hillsborough, the mayor will not stand in the way as long as the Rays make some concessions" (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 1/10).
OFFICE SPACE: In Cincinnati, Tom Demeroplis reports the regional office of FS Ohio “is moving downtown to get closer to the action.” The broadcast group “will relocate to Center at 600 Vine from its space on Cornell Park Drive in Blue Ash.” The Cincinnati office, which has “nine full-time employees and several freelancers, will move in February into space on the 22nd floor of the downtown office tower” (Cincinnati BUSINESS COURIER, 1/6 issue).
