Comic-Con Makes Money for San Diego

In case you didn't catch it, here's Alison St. John's piece that aired Monday about Comic-Con's economic impact on San Diego.

Did you know that Comic-Con brings San Diego its highest hotel-room occupancy rate of the year? This is interesting given rumors that both LA and Las Vegas have been courting Comic-Con to move to their respective cities. & The good news is the Convention Center has a contract with Comic-Con through 2012, so San Diego is home to the fan extravaganza for a while longer.
