Kephart’s New City Development LLC group became involved in the Coliseum City project on October 21 of last year. His goal is to keep all 3 of Oakland’s professional teams, yet to this point the Oakland Raiders are the only ones who have shown interest.

We look forward to having Floyd on our show and will do what we can to finally bring some clearness to what has been, for the most part, a media mess covering Coliseum City. Keith “Cpl RF Asshole” Salminen and The Bauce Man will interview Mr. Kephart on Wednesday afternoon. The interview will air during the 2nd hour of Show #135 on Thursday May 15th. We hope that you tune in!
