Michael Rogers touched base with MBN Operations Director Jeffrey Mosher about where he, Chris Holman and other staff have been out and about across Michigan covering business stories so far during November.The weather in November for Michigan had been beautiful, and MBN took in three events Wednesday November 2nd. They traveled to Southeast Michigan for MVCA the Michigan Venture Capital Association and their Annual Awards Dinner. Next Detroit's Ford Field played host to the Detroit Regional Chamber and their V.I.P. reception featuring Detroit Mayor Duggan. That stop served as the kickoff to MBN's Statewide 6-stop Economic Forecast Series which will continue through mid-December. Just up the road that evening in Southfield, the MIBB, Michigan Israel Business Bridge held their MIBB Ambassador Awards Dinner 2016.
