Insight On Business the News Hour

Radio Stories with Jeff Stein

Perhaps the best dressed man in all of radio our guest is Jeff Stein the News and Program Director for KXEL-AM Radio in Waterloo, Iowa and the Executive Director of the Iowa Broadcast News Association. Jeff was in town for the Iowa Broadcasters Association (IBA) annual meeting. Here we talk about corporate radio, why local radio wins, offer up some congratulations to IBA award winners and...well, just talk about the back-story of why radio remains a dominant force in the face of so many other choices.

Publishing with a Mission with Mandy Houk

If print is dead...as some suggest...why do publishers still crank out exceptional magazines? The answer is finding a niche that is under-served and going for it. In this case Mandy Houk does just that with Des Moines Move. Published six times a year the focus of Des Moines Move is to get school age kids out and moving. While for some that might mean changing the WiFi password at home...this magazine, which goes to kids in school in partnership with the schools, attempts to educate and reward. Have a listen and then...move.
