Leadership Jacksonville announced that the next episode of its award-winning Legacy Series films will feature former Jacksonville Mayor Jake Godbold and will begin airing on WJCT-TV in Jacksonville on Thursday, September 25 at 8 p.m.

Produced by Lindsey Films, the sixth installment of the video series spotlights Godbold’s legacy as Jacksonville mayor from 1978 to 1987, including beginning efforts to secure an NFL team and launching the construction of The Jacksonville Landing and the Southbank Riverwalk.

Godbold, who had previously served on the Jacksonville City Council, is known as a staunch advocate for the City and a prolific storyteller.

“Former Mayor Godbold has been at the forefront of improving our community for its citizens,” said Jill Langford Dame, executive director of Leadership Jacksonville. “We are privileged to be able to share his story and to be a part of documenting the legacy of this extraordinary man so that future generations can learn from his leadership.”

Earlier episodes of the Legacy Series have featured Dr. Frances B. Kinne, Alton W. Yates, The Honorable Frederick H. Schultz, Robert T. Shircliff and Delores Barr Weaver.

After each installment of the series airs on WJCT, it is available for viewing on the Leadership Jacksonville website and the organization’s YouTube channel.
