Airport Relocation on the Radio

by December 15, 2007 • 5 comments

Burnie Thompson, a local radio talk show host discussed the airport relocation on Thursday’s show.  I received an email from him on Thursday evening that he would be discussing this topic with various parties involved in the relocation the first part of next week.  He is on Talk Radio 101.1 FM.

I heard little opposition on the show on Thursday from callers, and the opposition I did hear, the arguments were weak at best.

One of the callers mentioned that if we took all the people that drove from Panama City to Tallahassee, Ft. Walton, Pensacola, Dothan, and Montgomery to fly and flew them our of PFN, the existing facility would not be able to handle it.  Another caller mentioned that the non-binding referendum that the opposition touts as overwhelming proof that the public does NOT want the airport to be relocated was held during a Democratic Primary and that overwhelming number was really only 60%.  Can anyone confirm this?

So, anyways.  Burnie keeps all his shows for the past week available on his website and you can hear them by clicking here.

If you introduce a new subject onto your PCB daily, please give a brief back ground of what’s going on. I didn’t know about the airport relocation and after reading the information you posted, I still don’t know anything. Just a little feedback to help you and your readers “get it”. Thanks!

Never mind. You are talking about “old” news. I thought there was new discussion about moving the airport (again) from its current location on 79 because of the freeze on construction.

I do not think the “Referendum” should hold water as the majority of Bay County voters live in Panama City and can’t stand anything that would benifit the beach. Let’s face it, if it weren’t for Panama City Beach there would be no need for any airport!
