It's taken more than 30 years, but Ron Fournier has finally found his way home to Detroit. 

After a career that took him to Hot Springs, where he covered a young Arkansas governor named Bill Clinton; to Washington, where he built a national political reporting career at the Associated Press, the National Journal and The Atlantic; Fournier is back in the Motor City. 

This is day one of his new job as associate publisher of Crain's Detroit Business

Fournier joined us today to talk about homecoming and some of the big questions about Detroit and Michigan he hopes to answer through his new job at Crain's.

GUEST Ron Fournier is the new associate publisher of Crain's Business Detroit. He tweets @ron_fournier.
