On a related note, KFBK’s Rob McAllister caught up with Darius Anderson, an intriguing selection to the committee considering his ties to billionaire Ron Burkle. McAllister says the CEO of Platinum Advisors would not comment directly on recruiting the grocery magnate as a private investor in the arena effort.
“There are lots of people that are watching this project, and I will contact anybody I know who can be helpful in the overall effort.” Anderson added, “If we can use our network to help the city effort, we will do everything we can.”
