Global Spectrum Lands Augusta Venues

A county coliseum authority has voted to turn over management of the James Brown Arena and Bell Auditorium in Augusta, Ga., to Global Spectrum.

Existing employees are expected to be retained, the Augusta Chronicle reported, and Global Spectrum will additionally hire a marketing director, sales manager and general manager for the venues.

The authority will pay $10,000 per month for the management services and oversee Global Spectrum’s monthly budgets, the paper said.
