NBC's business news channel, CNBC, is highlighting Chattanooga this week as one of its turnaround cities with an "innovative approach to diversifying its economy, adopting future-oriented strategies and making the city attractive to young talent."

In a report on "Rebooting Chattanooga's Fortune," CNBC correspondent Robin Micheli praises the Scenic City for having the fastest Internet speeds from EPB in the Western Hemisphere, the only automotive factory with LEED Platinum certification at Volkswagen and EPA's highest green-building rating. Micheli said the region has attracted $4 billion of foreign investment and tech entrepreneurs "revel in green spaces, hip cultural offerings and clean air."
