Like many, we took yesterday off due to the national holiday of Juneteenth and recovered a bit from a fantastic Father's Day. And...a couple of days off seemed to do Wall Street some good as well. Before we get there a reminder that you can follow along with us all day on Twitter @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram. Here is what we've got for you today:
- No News - Good News?
- 5 U.S. cities with massive unoccupied housing;
- Customer Service and Fast Food Flops;
- Kellogg's to become three companies;
- Dairy Queen, Bottled Water and The Blizzard;
- Uber & Lyft face a class action legal issue;
- Beer trouble in...Germany;
- The Wall Street Report;
- UberX Share is starting up and what that means.
For the interview you'll hear from Liz Kennedy in what was a totally unplanned conversation that we found interesting and amazing. From who owns The Cedar Rapids Gazette to exploring big ideas that will shape the future of Iowa. This is some serious good stuff. Liz is in charge of digital media for The Cedar Rapids Gazette. That led to this conversation about Iowa Ideas a multi day virtual event covering significant health issues impacting Iowans. (Yes, you can attend!) There is a shocking story about who owns the Gazette (which sheds new light on how they cover the news) and how badly they want your ideas and input. And, if that's not enough there is a fall (October 13-14) Iowa Ideas virtual event with the keynote being none other than the famous Simon Estes. So much to unpack here...enjoy. I sure did!
Thanks for listening!
