ATLANTIC CITY — From the announcement that Hard Rock was buying the closed Trump Taj Mahal to the groundbreaking for the Stockton Gateway project, 2017 served as a pivotal year for the future of the resort.
On this week's Atlantic City Story podcast, staff writers Nicholas Huba and Erin Serpico discuss the year that was in the resort, which ended with a new mayor for the city and a recent scandal that questions the Miss America future in the city.
We recap stories such as the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino announcing it's coming to Atlantic City, the $220 million Stockton Gateway project had its groundbreaking, Pink drew 50,000 people to the Boardwalk, and when the community lost Sen. and former Atlantic City Mayor Jim Whelan, who died in August.
A new episode of The Atlantic City Story podcast is available every Saturday morning. This podcast and previous episodes are also available on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher.
