  • Scene Food Editor Douglas Trattner talks with Katie Couric for "Cities Rising."

As earlier reported, Katie Couric came to Cleveland in May for Cities Rising, her Yahoo series on resurgence and growth in (formerly?) distressed cities across the country. While in town, the newswoman hung out with Scene's own Douglas Trattner and also Matthew McConaughey, who was filming a movie here at the time.

Now another video has dropped depicting Couric's time in Cleveland. The new clip is all about Cleveland's cultural comeback and sustaining Cleveland's food boom (watch below).
