Sixty years ago, Cleveland was a booming city full of promise, opportunity, and people.

Today, the city's population is less half of what it was in its prime and it ranks as one of the poorest big cities in the United States. Hometown hero Drew Carey reflects on how the city became the mistake on the lake and wonders about the city's future.

Is a Cleveland renaissance possible or is the city doomed to a long, slow death?

Reason Saves Cleveland with Drew Carey is written and produced by Paul Feine; camera and editing by Roger Richards and Alex Manning; narrated by Nick Gillespie; music by the Cleveland band Cats on Holiday and Max Bowerman.

This is the first of six episodes that will air between March 15-19, 2010.

Approximately 5 minutes long.
