SCRIPPS News-Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE and the MILWAUKEE BUSINESS JOURNAL will focus on five communities in their region next week with a series of "THE CHANGING FACE OF MILWAUKEE" reports on the air, online, and in print. The series will include radio reports and social media as well as articles and interviews. Starting MONDAY and doing one town a week, the series will take in-depth looks at OAK CREEK, BROOKFIELD, WAUWATOSA, GREENFIELD, and downtown MILWAUKEE.
“As WISCONSIN’s Radio Station, its critical for WTMJ to cover the local news that is affecting our area,” said WTMJ VP/GM TOM LANGMYER. “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.”
MILWAUKEE BUSINESS JOURNAL Market President and Publisher KIRA LAFOND 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.”
“WTMJ and MILWAUKEE BUSINESS JOURNAL reporters will work in pairs to go deeper on this story,” said WTMJ Dir. of Programming and News ERIC BROOKS. “With interviews of business leaders and government officials, our teams have created in-depth feature content and expansive digital coverage.”
