Birmingham Mayor William Bell talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the history of the 74th annual Magic City Classic weekend between Alabama State and Alabama A&M, bringing Hollywood to the historic city and much more.

“We’ll probably have about 150,000 to 180,000. It’s amazing the people that come out for this event. We have about 62,000 inside the stadium and probably double that outside the stadium.”

On the money the Classic brings to Birmingham:

“It went from about $13 million to $25 million in economic impact in this area.”
