In the second segment:

The Source: Latino Americans | Updates From Downtown

As city negotiations continue for a downtown grocery, ending the decades without a community staple, so too do those of a downtown Medical Campus. And what about the newly announced preferred route for the new streetcar system?

If nothing else, our guest, Centro Partnership CEO Pat DiGiovanni, must be smiling about the progress downtown has made and the promising prospects for future development. The question on everyone's mind, though, is: What is next for downtown?

*The Source airs at 3 p.m. on KSTX 89.1 FM - audio from this show will be posted by 5:30 p.m.
