Mayor John Cranley will be a guest Thursday morning on CNBC's "Squawk Box" cable TV program. Mayor Cranley is scheduled to appear at approximately 6:50 a.m. on May 8.

Joining Mayor Cranley in the TV appearance will be Johnna Reeder, president and CEO of REDI Cincinnati; and Robbie Riser Jennings, vice president of marketing at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The appearance is part of the "Cincy in NYC" expedition to New York, from May 6-12. During the trip, arts, political and business leaders from Cincinnati will promote all the amenities the Queen City has to offer for potential tourists, residents and businesses.

Mayor Cranley will discuss how Cincinnati is becoming an attractive city to relocate or expand a business, and is a place to get things done. The Mayor will note that Cincinnati recently was ranked by KPMG as the second most cost-competitive, business-friendly location in the large-cities category.

KPMG found that Cincinnati has the lowest overall facility costs among the 31 large cities it examined. Also, Cincinnati boasts the lowest property tax costs.
