    in Entertainment

    johnjhargrove new book #beneaththesurface this is the story about a major corporation #seaworld that broke the heart and the dreams of a little boy that was a killer whale trainer but sadly as john learned of sea world's treatment of the whales he knew his dream had to end. This heartbreaking story is #beneaththesurface and tells about his personal story and now his life long Journey to save the whales to get them out of captivity


    Beneath the Surface - Over the course of two decades, John Hargrove worked with 20 different whales on two continents and at two of SeaWorld's U.S. facilities. For Hargrove, becoming an orca trainer fulfilled a childhood dream. However, as his experience with the whales deepened, Hargrove came to doubt that their needs could ever be met in captivity. When two fellow trainers were killed by orcas in marine parks, Hargrove decided that SeaWorld's wildly popular programs were both detrimental to the whales and ultimately unsafe for trainers.

    John Hargrove talks about his time at Sea World, Blackfish his new book-Repeat

    in Entertainment

    REBROADCAST - 


    Despite a rebound in the U.S. economy, many leisure companies have seen their share prices stay flat on a YTD basis, as higher gas prices and cold weather have prevented many from spending on discretionary items or vacations.


     SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS) is truly having a year to forget, largely thanks to its most recent earnings report, and the impact of an ongoing public relations issue. In fact, the stock is down over 30% YTD, largely thanks to a recent earnings miss which sent shares of SEAS plunging to new depths in August trading. John Hargrove talks about his time at Sea World and about what he would like to see Sea World do and also his new book .
