This week, Scott Brockman, president and CEO of Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority joins host Eric Barnes on WKNO's Behind the Headlines. It's been five years since the offial de-hubbing of Delta, which led to a reanalysis of what the airport could do. Six carriers and 27 direct flights have been added since 2013. There are about 75 flights a day now, a significant reduction since the airport's hub heyday with 300 a day. Brockman also takes listeners through upcoming construction to the airport. Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News joins the discussion.

The Center for Southern Literary Arts will host the inaugural Memphis Literary Arts Festival this Saturday (June 16th), from 9 a.m. to  5 p.m. The festival includes panel discussions around a wide variety of topics, and a street fair. 

Zandria F. Robinson, Alice Faye Duncan, and Jamey Hatley joined us for Checking on the Arts.

The year 1968 may not hold many great connotations for Memphians who lived through it. The death of Martin Luther King, Jr. would leave an indelible mark on the city and its inhabitants forever. But in the wake of that tragedy, a group of citizens came together to find a solution to poverty and racial division. The Memphis Inter-Faith Association (MIFA) was founded in September of that year.
