If you have lived in the Akron area at some point these last six decades, chances are you’ve attended a concert, banquet, wedding, or some type of event at The Tangier. Soon, a new generation of kids will have their opportunity to make memories there, as well.

Ed George is the owner of the Tangier, at least for now, and he joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about the sale of his business and facility to the LeBron James Family Foundation.
