Central Standard

Corner To Corner Pt. I - The Plaza

Getting to know Kansas City, one neighborhood at a time.

On Wednesday's Central Standard, producer Matthew Long-Middleton travels to the Country Club Plaza to find out the history and purpose behind the iconic (and sometimes polarizing), shopping district. 

In the new series Corner To Corner, Long-Middleton (who recently moved from Brooklyn, NY), takes the relocation opportunity to get to know his new surroundings, and hopefully share something new with lifelong KC residents.

Joining us in studio will be Country Club Plaza historian Bill Worley, and South Plaza Neighborhood Association President Keith Spare.

Matthew Long-Middleton has been a talk-show producer, community producer, Media Training Manager and now the Community Engagement Manager at KCUR. You can reach him at Matthew@kcur.org, or on Twitter @MLMIndustries.
