Thanks for joining us for the business news headlines and stick around for a special two-part interview about the changing world of broadcasting. My guest is Jeff Stein the News and Program Director for News/Talk 1540 KXEL, based in Waterloo, Iowa. It's really an amazing behind the scenes look at how the media, be it print or broadcasting, has had to adjust their methods of sharing the news. But, first, here's what we've got for you today:
A stunning number of Americans quit their jobs;
Manufacturing in the U.S. has slowed down;
The new Omicron numbers are sobering;
But, the Blue Chips soared today;

Whoa, what? Meatless KFC chicken?

Those stories and a two-part conversation about the media business, knowing your customers, changing delivery methods and all that entails. My guest is Jeff Stein from News/Talk 1540 KXEL based in Waterloo, Iowa but heard in multiple Midwestern states as the sun goes down. Here is Part One of that conversation and here is Part Two. Enjoy!
