Greensboro News and Record Barter Agreement With Greensboro Coliseum
The Greensboro Coliseum has barter agreements with some local companies and with the last Greensboro City Council meeting on 7-20-2010 they were funding a new facility called the VIP Room. It was pointed out on another post at TRIADWATCH CLICKHERE about questions for Coliseum Director Matt Brown in regards to bartering services and construction jobs at the coliseum . This post and other post in the coming days will show you what we received in a open records request under North Carolina state law inquiry into the barter agreements at the Greensboro Coliseum.

As you can see from the above barter and trade agreement the Greensboro News and Record has around a $125,000 agreement with the Greensboro Coliseum that had a addendum for this past year . One of the contracts is from July of 2009 to June of 2010 which totaled $90,000 in trade/sponsorship/branding agreement . This agreement seems like a weekly advertisement in the Thursday edition of paper called GOTRIAD worth $77,939 along with having online trade for $12,061 for a total of $90,000.
