We are here and we are Inside Inglewood, bringing you good news about all that is happening in Inglewood, the fastest growing city in the nation, in my opinion. From once being a city plagued by crime and derision, with the help of a strong Black mayor who knows what he wants for his community, Inglewood has transformed into a clean, safe, and prosperous environment – a remarkable turnaround, and anyone in their right mind would say, “Wow, what a difference a caring mayor makes.” Mr. James T. Butts, the mayor of Inglewood, has been charting the course and leading the way inside Inglewood and the benefits are on full display. Just the other day, he was present at the Intuit Stadium, a visionary project spearheaded by none other than Mr. Steve Ballmer, the co-founder of Microsoft who ran MGM off and he showed who’s boss. Ballmer is all about business, and he doesn’t play around, which is why he and Mayor Butts are making big things happen in this little big town. With the stadium nearing completion, the Inglewood community has already scored a major victory. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, along with Los Angeles City Mayor Karen Bass, were on hand to announce that the 2026 NBA All-Star Games will be hosted inside Inglewood. This exciting news has   already garnered attention from the press and the public. Inside Inglewood was there on site to bring you all the happenings surrounding this progressive and powerful town. Located just a stone’s throw away from LAX and less than 15 miles from downtown Los Angeles, Inglewood is home to the Clippers, the Rams, and the Chargers. Under the leadership of its visionary crew, dreams are coming true in Inglewood, especially for families and the real estate market too. The local schools are also benefiting from the infusion of greatness and technology all wrapped up in “Sportsology” for national and the international world to see what’s happening inside Inglewood and those who are also near this Southbay town.
