A Better Mid-South: Who cares about the royals? I do.

Posted: Updated:

(WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Action News 5 general manager:

Prince William and Prince Harry have now come and gone after a visit to our city.

Over the weekend, I heard more than one person say -- who cares about the royals?

I care because Memphis and the Mid-South were thrust into the global spotlight in a positive way for a change.

The princes visited Memphis for a joyous occasion, and Mid-South treasures like Graceland and Rendezvous were repeated in news stories around the world.

As you probably realize, you can't buy publicity like that.

Shoot me an email if you want to talk about the royals or anything else that's on your mind. Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or go on Facebook and like my page. You can leave me a message and I'll catch up with you on Facebook.

Positive publicity about Memphis and the Mid-South spread around the world makes this A Better Mid-South.
