This blog post kicks off the Tech MBA Minute video series produced by the School of Business and Economics at Michigan Technological University’s Tech MBA Online program. Through this series we will talk with business leaders, the media, and thinkers to discuss ideas that power business.
Today’s conversation with Stephen Clark WXYZ Channel 7 News anchor (Detroit, MI.) focuses on how traditional media is changing and its parallel with the automotive industry. Detroit has changed dramatically since the height of the automotive boom. The automotive sector is not the only industry that has been impacted by the economy, technology and globalization, traditional media has been forced to change like many other industries.
Stephen Clark is a non-traditional man when it comes to media he uses twitter, he is on Skype and even blogs to tell an engaging story that a wired generation wants to hear.
