New tool offers weekly peak at upcoming news & events

Lee’s Summit Town Hall, a podcast production of Link 2 Lee’s Summit, has begun a new regular audio series.

Each Monday morning, Town Hall offers residents the Monday News Link, a short look ahead of news and events for the coming week. News Link is hosted by Link 2 Lee’s Summit publisher Nick Parker and KC Communications & Media Matters president John Beaudoin.

“We’re hoping this offers the people of Lee’s Summit a quick and simple way to know what’s happening in their community,” Parker said. “Not everyone has the time to dive fully into every issue and event in the community, but John and I are excited about putting together this short — less than 5 minutes — weekly tool designed to help every resident at least stay in the loop on some of the top topics in our City.”

In addition to the Monday News Link, Lee’s Summit Town Hall offers additional programming providing in-depth discussions on pertinent issues facing the community, as well as candidate interviews and forums during local elections and profile interviews with people in the community.

“Lee’s Summit Town Hall has one goal, and that’s to celebrate and encourage community involvement,” Parker said. “That starts with open dialogue on the big issues, interviews with elected officials and those seeking elective office, and quite simply, as many of the great people contributing to our community as possible.”
