Podcast: Howes on Mike Ilitch, Detroiter

Daniel Howes

Daniel Howes' Weekend Essay

Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes and Michigan Radio are partnering in weekly essays examining what's hot in Michigan business and politics -- and what it all means. This week, Howes says pizza mogul Mike Ilitch, who died at 87, leaves a legacy that arguably changed the arc of Detroit in ways he probably never could have imagined. Not when he bought the Red Wings and, a decade later, the Tigers. Not when he restored the Fox Theatre and later laid plans for the District Detroit development rising at Woodward and I-75. He made a difference.
