Tennessee Ranks No. 7 in Film Production Industry
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday January 4, 2017

A new report from the Center for Economic Research in Tennessee (CERT), the research arm of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, analyzed the recent impact of the film and production industry on Tennessees economy.

Tennessee currently ranks No. 7 among all states in the nation for employment in the film production industry. Since 2010, employment in Tennessees film industry has grown 8 percent. Nearly 4,400 Tennesseans work in the film industry, earning an average of nearly $59,800 annually before benefits, a figure that is 21.3 percent higher than the average wage of all industries in Tennessee.

CERT estimates that such projects have generated $228.3 million in new income for Tennessee workers. These production projects have created more than 4,000 new full-time jobs and generated nearly $371 million in economic output for the state over an eight-year span, CERT finds in the report. Additionally, TEC has supported hundreds more production projects with non-financial assistance. These production activities have created nearly 600 jobs and almost $35 million in new incomes for Tennesseans.

CERT estimates that tourism resulting from viewership of the CMTs Nashville, which airs in more than 80 countries, generated about $486.7 million in visitor spending and $34 million in state sales tax revenue over the three years following the shows premier. The growth in Tennessees motion picture and production industry also helps generate economic activity in other sectors of the economy especially the heartbeat of Tennessees creative economy: the music industry.

Petition calls to pull Pride of the Southland from inaugural parade
WVLT Tuesday January 3, 2017

At least 256 people have signed a petition to pull University of Tennessee's Pride of the Southland marching band from the 2017 inaugural parade.

The petition, addressed to President Joe DiPietro and Director Dr. Donald Ryder, asserts that the band should not participate in the presidential inauguration ceremonies.

Petitioners, who identified themselves as alumni and residents of Tennessee, said they were disturbed by what they called racist and sexist remarks made by President-Elect Donald Trump.

The petition stated, "As residents of Tennessee, we believe that the attendance at the upcoming inauguration of a band representing the state of Tennessee would condone this behavior. As alumni, we believe that no university should risk its reputation and credibility by welcoming such ignorance and celebrating a man like Trump."

When Senator Bob Corker announced the news on Twitter, he received mixed reactions from users of the social media site. Some 277 people "liked" the announcement and tweeted responses of enthusiasm. Others expressed concern over the announcement.
The Pride of the Southland has represented the state of Tennessee for multiple Presidential inaugurations.

The inaugural parade will commence on January 20, 2017 after the Inaugural Ceremonies conclude, and involves the President and Vice President making their way down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House leading a procession of ceremonial military regiments, citizens' groups, marching bands and floats.
