DETROIT (WXYZ) - "I am just the quarterback of a great team...." Tune in Sunday, February 2 at 9:30 am when I conduct an in-depth interview with Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, the 2013 WXYZ Newsmaker of the Year.
Orr spent a lot of time in the headlines in 2013. But who is Kevyn Orr and what does he really think about Detroit and his time in the Motor City? WXYZ-TV has the answers.
He will be featured in a special edition of Channel 7's weekly public affairs show Spotlight on the News. The city's first ever emergency manager talks about Detroit's bankruptcy, city services, civic leaders, his family and his college days.
WXYZ's Newsmaker of the year recognizes individuals who have had significant impact on Southeastern Michigan and the image of the region. Previous WXYZ Newsmakers include John Engler, Debbie Stabenow, Dennis Archer, Eleanor Josaitis, Peter Karmanos, Mitch Albom, Max Fisher, Justin Verlander, and Dan Gilbert.
Now in its 49th season, Spotlight on the News is Michigan's longest running weekly news and public affairs program.
