Columnist /Reporter John Boyle of the Asheville Citizen-Times was guest on this segment of More To The Story to cover some of his recent articles.  This included naming rights (licensing) of the current U.S. Cellular Center.  The building has been the long time home to big music concerts and other entertainers of all kind and was known many years as the Asheville Civic Center.  Will U.S. Cellular hang on to the name or can Harrah's Cherokee Casino win over the rights?  Boyle also gave an update on Asheville's on-going housing issues.   The interview originally aired April 24, 2019.
