ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The managing owner of Albany's State Theater has been tapped as the best qualified candidate for the Albany Civic Center Director's position.

Lane Rosen said it would be premature to talk with us on camera but said he's excited about what he may be able to do to bring entertainment to the region. The initial person chosen for the job turned the city down in September. 20 people applied for the job the second go around. The city interviewed three people and chose two finalists, but only Rosen agreed to have his name released.

The city must wait 14 days before officially offering Rosen the job. The city manager and city attorney are now reviewing the possible conflict of interest since Rosen now operates a private downtown entertainment venue.
