Media Placements, New Hires & Retirements

Media Placements

Lindner faculty were frequently called on by local, national and international news outlets to respond to developments in business and the global economy during the 2021–22 academic year. Michael Jones, PhD, associate professor-educator, economics, and Charles “Chuck” Sox, PhD, associate dean, graduate programs and partnerships, and an operations and business analytics professor, were Lindner’s so-called “media darlings” due to the sheer number of appearances and the range of topics they discussed.


Michael Jones, PhD, associate professor-educator, economics.

Jones was interviewed by WCPO and WLWT throughout the school year on a range of topics: inflation, homeschooling, small businesses, employee wages, spending habits, rising gas prices, working from home, the labor shortage, consumer buying power, adjustable-rate mortgages and the end of federal unemployment benefits enacted during the pandemic.

He also appeared on Spectrum News to talk about cryptocurrency; joined WVXU to chat about Intel constructing a manufacturing plant in Central Ohio; was interviewed by email newsletter Morning Brew about inflation and employee retention; and joined the podcast “The Kentucky Side” to chat about the job market, interest rates and more.

Sox appeared on WCPO, WLWT and Local 12 on multiple occasions, chiefly to lend expertise on supply chain issues, but he also touched on rising metal prices and grocery store inventory shortages. He was also interviewed by NBC News on the effects of supply chain disruption in the auto industry and made a pair of appearances on Canadian radio show “Hamilton Today with Scott Thompson” to discuss the economic effects of the trucking protest along the U.S.-Canada border.
