CHARLESTON, W. Va. (AP) — Officials are exploring the possibility of naming the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center after a sponsor.

The Charleston City Council appointed eight members to the new Select Committee on Naming Rights – Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported.

The panel will seek and evaluate sponsor proposals from across the nation, said City Manager Jonathan Storage.

“It is good for our community, it’s good for the sponsor and it’s good for a revenue stream for the facility,” Storage said.

The committee will seek a sponsor with name recognition that will be a good community partner, he said.
