As much as we like to think of the New Year as a clean slate, the issues and developments of the years before carry over. With that in mind, today on St. Louis on the Air we took a look at what the trends of the past 12 months can tell us about what the St. Louis region can expect in 2014.
The conversation focused on politics and the economy, with a special focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and diversity.
The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis has a rich history in the region, with roots that stretch back 95 years. For the past 28 years, the organization has been led by James Buford, who retired as CEO at the end of May.
Former alderman and City License Collector Michael McMillan became the new CEO of the Urban League last week. St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh sat down with McMillan to discuss what's next for the organization.
Although McMillan is new to the role of CEO, he is not new to the Urban League. He has been a member since he was sixteen.
