Red, White and KaBoom!

It’s summer and we have a new team on BackChannel. This week we interview City of Lakeland’s Director of Communications Kevin Cook about Red, White and KaBoom, the city’s yearly fireworks display. (Don’t adjust your sound. We had a slight glitch. However, auto-tuning Cook’s voice gives it a certain Justin Beiber quality, don’t you think?)
