Putting Connecticut Back On The Map


Not too long ago, Connecticut had a $1 tourism budget, and we’d been taken off New England’s official tourism map.

Well, we’re back, baby!  In a capitol press conference yesterday, Dannel Malloy - already the “jobs” governor - is now the “tourism governor,” too...launching a summer ad campaign to get people back to the state.

The governor knows how these campaigns can work.  Back in the 1970s, while in college - he worked on the “I Love New York” campaign.

Today, where we live, a look at Connecticut tourism with Kip Bergstrom, the new executive director of the Connecticut Commission on Toursim.  

We’ll look at what the state’s plan to be a tourist destination is - and where the money to pay for the marketing is coming from.
