Our ABD survey in 4th Quarter, led to ABD Extra—an extra series of stories that “drops” each Monday at 12 noon in this space. We’re following our survey results which indicated that our readers were most interested in stories about Economic Development and Job Recruiting\Retention.
Each Monday, you’ll read the latest information from a pair of CSRA business experts at AU’s Hull College of Business—Economist, Dr. Simon Medcalfe and the former Dean at Hull—Dr. Rick Franza.
We’ve hired Dana Lynn McIntyre, a hard-nosed, data driven reporter with 40 years experience, who will bring you a comprehensive top story each week.
You’ll hear unique podcasts and get caught up in the “week that was” with a look back at 3 of our top stories from the economic and job sectors.
Former WSB Atlanta reporter Mike Petchenik will let us know what’s happening with economic development in the whole state, plus we’ll have other features. If you want no-nonsense, serious biz news, this is the place!
Special thanks to our sponsors Salamis Consulting, TAB CSRA, and Powell and Associates for helping to fund this 13 week experiment.
