Downtown Depot

First and Third Fridays at 11:30am and 8pm
  • Hosted by Austin Meek

Downtown Depot is a partnership with Waco Business News and KWBU. Featuring host Austin Meek, the 30-minute show looks at the ins and outs of development in Waco. Each week you can hear interviews with local entrepreneurs, city officials, and people with a stake in developing our city on the Brazos.

During the show you'll also hear updates about new businesses, closures and development rumblings around town. But we also want to hear from you. Is there a building or an update on development that you want to know about? Let us know.
