WTMJ Radio and the Milwaukee Business Journal will present an in-depth news series to cover Southeastern Wisconsin’s unprecedented growth in business and infrastructure. Beginning October 3, the newsrooms will partner to create on-air, online and print stories, interviews, social media and videos focusing on all aspects of development in the area.
“As Wisconsin’s Radio Station, its critical for WTMJ to cover the local news that is affecting our area,” said Tom Langmyer, vice president and general manager of WTMJ and WKTI. “Partnering with the Milwaukee Business Journal provides WTMJ great access in the business community, and more complete coverage of the economic boom in Southeastern Wisconsin.”
Kira Lafond, market president and publisher of Milwaukee Business Journal said, “When I came to Milwaukee Business Journal from WTMJ Radio two years ago, I dreamt of the powerful things we could do together. Individually our organizations are strong. Together we are even stronger. Our news teams complement each other and together we deliver an affluent, highly educated audience that makes a real difference in this community.”
Our readers and listeners are over twice as likely to be opinion leaders, business to business decision makers and investors. They vote. They purchase high-end homes and vehicles. They volunteer and give back to our community in impactful ways. We will continue to look for ways we can serve Milwaukee together.”
“The Changing Face of Milwaukee” news series will focus on one local community each day:
• October 3 – Oak Creek
• October 4 – Brookfield
• October 5 – Wauwatosa
• October 6 – Greenfield
• October 7 – Downtown Milwaukee
“WTMJ and Milwaukee Business Journal reporters will work in pairs to go deeper on this story,” said Eric Brooks, WTMJ director of programming and news. “With interviews of business leaders and government officials, our teams have created in-depth feature content and expansive digital coverage.”
This special news series is in addition to the daily content partnership between the Milwaukee Business Journal and WTMJ. Business Journal reporters share local business headlines six times each weekday along with in-depth analysis of breaking business news in Milwaukee.
