Businesses booming from "Cleveland Hustles"

CLEVELAND - Cleveland's Gordon Square Arts District is now in the national spotlight thanks to LeBron James.

Wednesday evening marked the season finale of his show "Cleveland Hustle" on CNBC. The program showcases the Cavs superstar, his business partner Maverick Carter, and local investors.

It brought more than $1 million in investments in four businesses in Gordon Square: Fount, Old City Libations, Cleveland Bagel, and Groundswell.

And more businesses are going to receive help as well.

A big announcement came during a local watch party for "Cleveland Hustles."

Investor Alan Glazen, along with the Council of Smaller Enterprises, said the Cleveland Hustle investment model will be rolled out to more Cleveland neighborhoods undergoing revitalization efforts.
