Episode 5: 3 Presidents, Detroit, Twitter and Advice


A little more than a year ago, Ron Fournier returned home to Michigan after covering three US Presidents for the Associated Press in Washington DC.  He joined Crain’s Detroit Business and today is the publication’s publisher and editor.

What was the single most important day he spent covering the White House?  How has he found the transition from journalism to the business of journalism?  Is social media leading journalists to show too much of themselves?

We ask Ron these questions and more.  We also welcome in our first-ever guest host to the podcast and talk about the Resch Strategies annual holiday cartoon.
