The New Bedford Harbor Development Commission has a new name. It is now the New Bedford Port Authority, which oversees a major part of the city's economy, the Port of New Bedford. Port Director Edward Anthes-Washburn joins WBSM's Jim Phillips this week to discuss the name change and how it benefits the port, and some little-known facts about the economic strength of the Port of New Bedford. One of those little-known facts:  Activity in the Port of New Bedford represents a full 2% of the Massachusetts economy.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
