The Craig Fahle Show

Podcast for Friday, November 16, 2012

Friday, November 16, 2012

It may be Friday, but doesn't mean that the show still can't tackle some big stories.

Today, Craig chats with Wayne State University Law Professor Robert Sedler on the implications and issues at the heart of yesterday's U.S. Federal Appeals Court ruling striking down the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, a statewide ban on affirmative action. Author and social media specialist Scott Stratten tells Craig how social media can change marketing. Bob Bury from the Detroit Historical Society talks about why people should be excited for the grand reopening of the Detroit Historical Museum. Our Friday Follies Crew — Deadline Detroit's Jeff Wattrick, Nancy Kaffer from the Detroit Free Press, Brian O'Connor of the Detroit News and WDET's own Nick AUstin — covers the issues we skipped in a lightning-round round table. University of Michigan at Dearborn and longtime journalist Tim Kiska offers up a tribute to recently deceased Detroit weatherman and broadcaster Sonny Elliot. The senior vice president of the Downtown Detroit Partnership gives a preview of tonight's Christmas Tree lighting. And WDET's Travis Wright tells us what to watch for this weekend in the metro Detroit region.
