Crain’s Detroit reporters will cover just one topic
Ron Fournier, the new publisher and editor of Crain’s Detroit Business, writes about how the newsroom has been restructured.
Fournier writes, “First, the Crain’s newsroom has just been restructured to produce more news that my predecessor, Mary Kramer, calls ‘business intelligence’ — information and insights that help you find new business and reshape yours. This is our bread and butter, information you can’t get anywhere else, and we’re doubling down on it.
“Crain’s beat reporters will no longer be responsible for more than one topic area, a practice that spread our coverage thin. Our top reporters will focus on a single beat and nail it — developing sources, mining those sources for scoops and insights, and writing stories that provoke new thinking and action.
“In short, they’ll go deeper: Jay Greene on health care, Kirk Pinho on real estate, Bill Shea on sports business, Lindsay VanHulle on government, Sherri Welch on nonprofits and Dustin Walsh on economic issues. Our latest addition, Chad Livengood, will connect the dots on a beat we call Detroit Rising.”
