Reporters reconstruct the frenzied effort to woo Amazon to Detroit

Jan 16, 2018

When Amazon calls, cities jump.

That's the lesson we learn in reporter Chad Livengood's new story for Crain's Detroit Business.

Livengood and co-author Kirk Pinho plowed through more than 1,800 pages of documents to be able to construct Detroit's response to Amazon's request for bids for a second headquarters.

Livengood joined Stateside Tuesday to explain what he and Pinho uncovered in their piece, “The frenetic race to build Detroit’s Amazon bid.”

Listen to Stateside’s conversation with Livengood above, and read his full story here.
