As the top journalist and now CEO of Fortune Media — publisher of Fortune magazine, Fortune.com, and an increasing array of live Fortune global conferences — Alan Murray is one of the most influential business journalists in the country.
In his capacity as the head of Fortune, Alan has the opportunity to keep company with many of the world's most prominent and influential people, including presidents, heads of state, legendary CEOs, titans of Wall Street, and even the Pope.
Alan is the author of a bold, newly released book, Tomorrow’s Capitalist: My Search for the Soul of Business.
In the book, Alan encapsulates the wisdom of his coterie, mixed with a full serving of his own savvy, to create a vision for a new, 21st-century breed of business owners and leaders. Alan dubs them Capitalists 2.0.
Some of Alan’s ideas are surprisingly radical — or, if not radical — certainly a break from the traditions of Corporate America and the deeply-rooted Milton Friedman philosophy that “There is one and only one social responsibility of business–to use its resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits.”
This week, Alan sits for an exclusive interview with host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart to explain how tomorrow’s CEOs can do a better job than their predecessors for their employees, communities, and investors.
[Note: Alan’s journalism career spans more than four decades, including serving as deputy managing editor, executive editor online, Washington bureau chief, and a columnist for The Wall Street Journal. He is the recipient of a Business News Visionary Award, nominated by his peers and recognized for his transformative contributions to the business journalism profession.
Next Monday, June 20th, as Monday Morning Radio begins its 11th year of podcasting, host Dean Rotbart will moderate an extra special panel to discuss a provocative new book, the Future of Business Journalism.
Everyone who owns a business, operates a professional practice, or works for either, understands the importance of the business news media - and their ability to provide actionable insights and intelligence.
Chris Roush - Dean of the Quinnipiac University School of Communications and a veteran business journalist, is the author of The Future of Business Journalism which contends that significant changes must take place in the ways business journalism organizations operate for the betterment of Main Street and Wall Street.
Joining Chris and Dean will be four distinguished business journalists:
Peter Coy, Opinion Economics Writer, The New York Times
Henry Dubroff, Owner and Founder, Pacific Coast Business Times
Matt Murray, Editor in Chief, The Wall Street Journal
Matt Quayle, Senior Executive Producer, CNBC-TV
