A little less than two years ago, Sparrows Point was bought by liquidator Hilco Global. The site, once home to one of the largest steel mills in the world, could change hands soon once again. What challenges would the new owners face? And, how might Sparrows Point find life once again?

With Sheilah to talk about it is Mark Reutter, a reporter for the online news site Baltimore Brew and author of the book, “Making Steel: Sparrows Point and the Rise and Ruin of American Industrial Might”. Read Mark Reutter's reporting on the possible saleof Sparrows Point here.

 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
