CLOCKWISE: Dean Rotbart, Matt Quayle, Peter Coy, Henry Dubroff, Matt Murray, and Chris Roush
A special audio/video edition of Monday Morning Radio presenting a panel of distinguished journalists discussing the future of business journalism.

This is the first episode in the 11th year of the business-to-business podcast.
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.
The discussion arises from the publication of The Future of Business Journalism and Why It Matters for Wall Street and Main Street by Chris Roush. Roush is the Dean of the Quinnipiac University School of Communications, where he is also a professor. He is a veteran business journalist and the founder of Talking Biz News — a must-read website for journalists and communications executives about the business journalism profession.
Roush joins Dean Rotbart, award-winning author and host of Monday Morning Radio, to examine the history of the business journalism profession, its current status, and what Roush believes are the changes that are necessary to buttress business and financial news going forward.
In his book, Roush writes: “[The] shift in business news content away from many consumers and small business owners on Main Street and toward Wall Street investors, money managers, and Fortune 500 executives is one of the most misunderstood inequalities in twenty-first century American civic life.”
To examine that contention, along with other key elements in The Future of Business Journalism, are a distinguished panel of four veteran business journalists:

This week on Monday Morning Radio, three experts on employee theft – an investigator, a litigation attorney, and a prosecutor – join host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart for a panel discussion on how to prevent, detect, and respond to dishonest employees.

The Beagle Has Landed: The Metaphorical, Metaphysical Indiana Beagle Steps Up to the Mic as Guest Host
Readers of Roy H. Williams’ Monday Morning Memo are well-acquainted with Indiana Beagle, the legendary curator and editor-in-chief of the Rabbit Hole.
Although “Indy” is a metaphorical, metaphysical canine – the twin brother of Intuition, a leading character in the Destinae trilogy – he embodies spontaneous, impulsive, reckless curiosity.
Which is exactly why Monday Morning Radio host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart asked Indy to serve as the guest host of this week’s episode.
Don’t be fooled, however. Indy’s interview with Dean is not only entertaining, it’s also actionable, as Dean shares a behind-the-scenes look at how Monday Morning Radio is produced and the lessons that Dean has gleaned in the course of hosting and producing more than 300 episodes.
Do his guests all share common traits? Yes. And no.
Are they all business successes? More yes, than no.
Might you be a suitable guest for Monday Morning Radio?
Tune in and discover for yourself, not only what it takes to land a slot on Dean’s very popular podcast, but also how you can ace any broadcast or print interview that comes your way.

Last night – Sunday, July 16th – was the Season 7 premiere of HBO’s smash hit, Game of Thrones, which consistently averages more than 23 million viewers per episode.
One byproduct of the show’s huge popularity is that it has ignited global demand for genuine Viking and medieval collectibles.
This week, on a special double-header edition, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart showcases two businesses that have ridden the Game of Thrones coattails to phenomenal success.
First, Dean interviews Bob Dodge, co-founder of Artemis Gallery, a leading U.S. auction house selling Viking artifacts and jewelry; and then Dean sets sail on an entrepreneurial voyage of discovery with http://www.artemisgallery.com/, a senior executive with LiveAuctioneers.com, which runs live auctions in 47 countries worldwide and has hard data on just how “hot” the Viking collectibles market is right now.
