Tampa Natives Show to Feature Tampa’s Cigar Heritage

newmanThis week Eric Newman from the Newman’s Cigar Factory will be the guest on the Tampa Natives Show. The Newman Cigar Factory is the only remaining cigar factory operating in Ybor City. The factory is currently fighting new FDA regulations that will likely put the factory out of business. This will end a significant element of Tampa’s cultural identity. You can see information on the threat at: Save Cigar City.

Verizon #30   Brighthouse  #950  Comcast #20  (Hillsborough County wide)
