    (NECN) - A story in the Boston Herald declares 2012 to be the "Year of the Casino" thanks to the casino titans who are taking a good look at the Bay State.

    It's rumored that the world's third richest man, Sheldon Adelson of Las Vegas Sands Corporation, will soon enter the casino fray.

    Adelson will compete with Steve Wynn of Wynn Resorts and Gary Loveman of Caesar's for the prized licenses to develop the first of the newly approved casinos in Massachusetts.

    Joining Jim Braude on Broadside to talk about the latest development are Kim Driscoll, mayor of Salem, Mass., and Sonia Chang Diaz, State Senator from Boston.
