GRAND RAPIDS – A veteran Michigan tech journalist is back in print after more than a decade in online-only journalism.
Mike Brennan, who has owned and run MiTechNews.com since 2000, will take on the additional role of Senior Writer-Technology for MiBiz, which publishes twice-monthly business newspapers in Grand Rapids, Battle Creek, Kalamazoo and Muskegon, the latter of which covers the Lake Michigan shoreline counties.
