New beats for Walsh, Nagl at Crain’s Detroit

Crain’s Detroit Business has moved reporter Dustin Walsh to the health care beat and Kurt Nagl to the manufacturing beat, writes executive editor Kelly Root.

Root writes, “Dustin, a 12-year Crain’s veteran who currently covers manufacturing and the economy, is stepping into the beat at a critical time. A newly vaccinated nation is emerging from the pandemic facing much uncertainty about the future of health care. From patients to providers to insurers, the industry has been upended. How will metro Detroit hospital systems adapt to new financial and operational challenges? Who’s investing in scientific research, and why? What’s being done to address health care inequities laid bare by COVID?

“All are important topics for Crain’s and for Dustin, who brings a keen eye for economic analysis to every assignment.

“Finally, moving into the key manufacturing and suppliers beat will be Kurt Nagl, a talented reporter who has covered a wide variety of topics since joining Crain’s in 2017, most recently higher education and the business of sports.

“He’ll have his hands full covering an industry that’s also undergoing pandemic-related change, including critical supply chain interruptions and a disrupted workforce that’s making some jobs tough to fill.”
