Arizona Public Media partners with the newspaper Inside Tucson Business for a weekly report on local business and economic news. AZPM's Zac Ziegler is joined by Inside Tucson Business Editor Mark Evans every week.

In this week's edition, Mark and Zac discuss Rio Nuevo's upcoming renovation work at the Tucson Convention Center and Rio Nuevo's future.

They also talk about why a handful of Tucson hotels are in financial distress, including the Viscount Suites, which is now in foreclosure, and what another small satellite campus in the Tucson area means for Grand Canyon University.

Mark and Zac also talk about what it takes to be named one of Inside Tucson Business' "Up and Comers."
