Inside The Times, episode 2: Maybe Elvis hasn’t left the building

August 16, 2018

Is Elvis really dead? Did he fake his own death to fool the mob? Has he been making phone calls? The gang at The Times in Gainesville talks about the most explosive news of the week with life reporter Layne Saliba, who talked with a local woman who has been researching Elvis’ death for years.

She’s talked with Oprah, Larry King and now she’s talking with The Times about why Elvis might still be alive. Listen in to hear more about the story and read it on

Shannon, Nick and Layne also make their picks of the week, which you can find here:

  • Nick Watson’s Sunday story on a Dawsonville man who made the perilous journey from Guatemala to the United States and is now awaiting his green card.
  • Jeff Gill’s Sunday story on the retirement of Bill Coates, longtime pastor of First Baptist Church in Gainesville. Coates had a frank conversation with Jeff that offers a rich look into the life of a Southern preacher.
  • Joshua Silavent’s Wednesday story about the work to revive the dilapidated Butler Gym, a former gathering place for Gainesville’s African-American community that now sits neglected.
