A group of Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism students spent the last week in September working with Micki Maynard, one of the nation's top business journalists, on stories about efforts to reinvent Reno.
Bob Felten writes, "Maynard acted as editor while nine students reported and wrote stories for a blog about Reno's future.
"'This seems to be a topic of great interest here in the community and also nationally,' said Maynard.
"Now, Maynard has written an article on the students' work and findings that Forbes.com has posted on its Reinventing America page, 'Can Apple, Indie Music And Gourmet Pizza Reinvent Reno?' The article has a direct link to the student work posted on ReinventingReno.com.
"Maynard is a contributor to Forbes Magazine, Forbes.com, theatlanticcities.com and jalopnik.com. She is the former Detroit bureau chief for The New York Times and the author of four books, most notably The End of Detroit: How the Big Three Lost Their Grip.
"Professor Alan Deutschman, Reynolds Chair of Business Journalism, brought Maynard to Reno to provide an exceptional opportunity for students to do important journalism."
