Behind the Headlines

Many local restaurants and retail companies have taken a hit as an effect of COVID-19. Despite the pandemic and its economic casualties, the President and CEO of Downton Memphis Commission (DMC) Paul Young says that no local major projects and developments have ceased - all are looking to advance. Young also says that "investment capital is still flowing" and that investors are having a keen eye for post-pandemic numbers. 


Young joins host Eric Barnes and Daily Memphian reporter Bill Dries for this week’s WKNO-TV Behind the Headlines. Young talks about proposed and existing local development projects, such as the Loews Hotel and Hyatt Centric.


In addition, Young discusses the DMC's goals for the future.
