The Bottom Line

PROVIDENCE, RI – Providence Business News Editor Mark Murphy joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon for a weekly business segment we're calling "The Bottom Line." Each Friday it looks at business news and themes that affect local business and the public.

The recent numbers for hotel use in Providence were very encouraging. Hotel occupancies in Providence were up in June, as room rates approached pre-recession levels. "The Bottom Line" this week looks behind those numbers and attracting local convention business. This week's guest on "The Bottom Line" is Providence/Warwick Convention and Visitors Bureau CEO Martha Sheridan. Also joining the discussion is "Providence Business News" editor Mark Murphy.
