Living in northern Michigan, I have been blind to a lot of the issues Detroit has gone through. I’ve always known that it took a turn for the worst, but I didn’t know when and I didn’t know why. Detroit isn’t something connected to me personally, so I never went out of my way to learn the history of what happened. With the LAS scholarship, my cohort is taking a trip to Detroit to work one on one with the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy.
1.) Be Relatable – One of the best things about Jimmy is how he reaches out to his audiences, and seems genuinely interested in everyone he encounters. One of the reasons he was such a wide fan base is because he is so in-touch with modern media, and his audiences. He has such a wide variety of stars on the show, and skits to keep the audience entertained. One of his skits on the show is even taking the Tweets from his followers and reading them aloud on the show. He is always thinking about what his audience is going to want to hear about and trying to please them.
