One of the highlights of 2016 for me was being part of a new nationally syndicated podcast, The Shrimp Tank.
My co-host Brad Berger and I had a blast with seven fascinating guests starting in September. We begin 2017 with a switch in times – now 3 pm PST every other Wednesday. The next episode with stream live on January 11th with our guest Ryan Fournier of Fournier Insurance Solutions in University Place, WA.
Since the calendar is flipping into a new year, I thought it might be a great time to review our fantastic guests from last year! You’ll find each episode of our first seven guests on a daily blog post – both the audio podcast (45 minutes) and the video wrap-up (5-6 minutes). I encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter (on our website above) and to our show on iTunes.
Episode 5: Jeff Rounce / Founder of The Business Examiner (Tacoma): LINK
Jeff Rounce is a graduate of Washington State University and a veteran of the United States Airforce. Before founding the Business Examiner in 1986 he had a career in on-air news management throughout each of the four Pacific Northwest states.
Early on, the Business Examiner came in the form of a bi-weekly newspaper exclusively covering the local South Sound business community. After three decades, the Business Examiner left the newspaper medium behind and moved to a monthly glossy magazine starting in 2016. This is in addition to a robust digital presence – both in extensive web content and e-newsletters.
A believer that businesspersons ought to be participants in their communities, Jeff is a past-president of the Rotary Club of Tacoma #8, past director of both Tacoma-Pierce County and Olympia-Thurston County Chambers of Commerce, and current member of PLU School of Business Advisory Board. This is in addition to numerous other volunteer leadership activities with local industry and non-profit organizations.
