Nearly a dozen local business leaders gathered at our KWTO studios Thursday for Zimmer Midwest Communication’s quarterly CEO Roundtable.
Our panel discussed the level of optimism in our local and regional economy for the remainder of 2023 and beyond, as well as potential effects of the showdown in Washington D-C over the debt ceiling.
The CEO’s also discussed the effects of large brick and mortar retailers, such as Bed, Bath and Beyond closing their doors.
The discussion with these leaders will continue in the form of follow-up interviews on local issues of concern, through programming on Wake Up Springfield, The Elijah Haahr Show and Watching the Ozarks with Bonnie Bell on 93-3 and A-M 560 KWTO.
