The Mayor goes on the AIR with Me about Covid 19

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

Just this afternoon Shaun Sipma, the Mayor of Minot ND, joined me in a conversation of what's new on the Covid 19 situation in Minot. I am so thankful that the Mayor made time for me just minutes after I called him and asked if he wanted to go on air about this situation.

The Mayor had a lot to say and a lot was shocking. #1 to me is that the Norsk Hostfest is cancelled this year. The Norsk Hostfest is an international celebration that brings millions of dollars into our community. My biggest personal concern is "will Minot have a graduation ceremony this year?".

This interview makes the cut as Breaking News and the radio stations that normally play it on Friday decided to play it immeadiately as a news piece as well as on Friday.

Minot Today is broadcast over the air on two Minot radio stations every Friday. You can find it on 106.9 FM at 12:15 (Noonish) and again at 4:45 on 1320 AM. Of course I always post the broadcast as a Podcast here as well as my Podcast site at Pod-O-Matic.

So sorry that the festival is canceled. This virus is resulting in all public "fun" being stopped.  Congratulations on your interview.

Clearly, a shame that the Norsk Hostfest is cancelled, Bob. I think there are many towns and cities right now who are cancelling "money makers" due to the corona virus. As for graduation ceremonies... clearly they and proms are at risk... all we can do is wait and see.

Thank you Lynnea Miller . Part of the decision making process was the demographics of the attendees. I believe the average age is squarely in the high risk group for this virus. Another factor was the lead time needed by contract to cancel the entertainment.

It is a shame Nina Hollander and now I'm waiting for the "other" shoe to drop and hear that they are canceling the State Fair. That would be such a huge blow to Minot's economy.

Thank you Lauren Williams, CPO . I love doing my weekly radio interviews and the Mayor has always been good to go on the air with me. This was really a special treat and newsworthy is just another bonus.

Morning Bob.

Breaking news, we hear that so often, just to find out it's the same old thing.  Not in this case, it truly was, breaking news.

Thanks James Dray . I usually like to hold my interviews until Friday but this one was just to hot. It was on the air with-in 15 minutes of the interview taking place and just about as quickly on my podcast and here as well.

Even though I did not intend the show to be "news" it was so there was no holding it back. Thanks James Dray .

It could have been worse Endre Barath, Jr. . I'm just very happy he didn't say that the State Fair will be canceled.
