Hiram Jackson, publisher of The Michigan Chronicle, talked about changes at the iconic Detroit-based media company as it celebrates its 80th year of operation during taping of “Michigan Matters” airing 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 21, on CBS 62.
The media company is planning a mega-celebration event at Cobo Center to mark its anniversary.
Jackson, CEO of Real Times Media, parent company of the Chronicle, talked with Carol Cain, Senior Producer/Host of “Michigan Matters,” and discussed changes brought about by the hyperactive digital world and impact on his media company.
The Chronicle is preparing to move to new offices in June.
Jackson also talked about the upcoming season of “Pancakes and Politics” — which it launched 11 years ago and has grown into a signature community event in Metro Detroit. It has featured influential speakers from governors, mayors, CEOs and more all discussing vital issues.
CBS 62 is a sponsor of the four springtime breakfast forum series. The Pancakes and Politics forums will air as special “Michigan Matters” on CBS 62.
The first Pancakes forum will be held March 17 at the DAC with three more slated for April, May and June.
