More to Detroit biz news than cars
Keith Crain, editor in chief of Crain’s Detroit Business, writes on the 25th anniversary of the paper’s founding that its focus hasn’t changed — it still wants to report on the business news in Detroit that others ignore.
Crain writes, “But nobody covered just the business of Detroit. Even then, when you had two robust dailies, they were simply too busy covering car companies, national business news and pages of stock tables. They didn’t have the time, space or the interest in local business news. Obviously, that is even truer today.
“That’s all we covered then and that’s what we do today.
