We’ve got a great weekend of The Current coming up for you! It’s a full hour packed with great guests, important topics and ways to connect with the Tampa Bay community. Our segments for the weekend of April 27-28 include:

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson and U.S. Congresswoman Kathy Castor‘s press conference in St. Petersburg marking the third anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Curtis Stokes of Fifth Third Bank: The Fifth Third Feeding Families food drive, in partnership with Metropolitan Ministries, runs now through May 3rd (5/3, of course) with a goal of feeding 5,300 families. You can donate non-perishable food items at any of their 47 area Fifth Third branches.

Tracey Keim, Sara Stonecipher, Kimberly Rogers and Barbara Daire of Iconic St. Pete: On May 2nd, the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce will honor winners of the 2013 Iconic Awards, recognizing women leaders in business, nonprofits, community service and more. Our second group of finalists this weekend include Barbara Daire of the Suncoast Center, Kimberly Rogers of the Community Law Program, Sara Stonecipher of MISRED Outfitters and Tracey Keim of the Sunshine Project.

Take Back The Night: We interviewed participants at last week’s Take Back The Night sexual assault awareness rally in Tampa, including Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor, Colonel Scott DeThomas of MacDill Air Force Base and Raana Simmons of the Sexual Violence Task Force of Tampa Bay.

Political panel of Adam Goodman, Carrie Henriquez and William March: With just one week left in Florida’s annual 60-day legislative session, our panel of political experts broke down the big stories and identified Tampa Bay’s big winners. From the right, Republican strategist Adam Goodman of The Victory Group; from the left, Democratic strategist Carrie Henriquez of Henriquez Consulting; and in the middle, Tampa Tribune political writer William March.
