Norcia appeared with Carol Cain, Senior Producer/Host, and  talked about DTE's efforts to help those unable to pay their utility bills which is even more dire during the frigid temperatures.

He also discussed GM's blockbuster announcement this week that they will invest $7 billion in Michigan plants and create thousands of new jobs tied to the electric future. Norcia was involved with those conversations as DTE is the largest utility in the state.

Vann also talked about serving as Co-Chair with Norcia at United Way. It's the first time the non-profit has had a CEO and community leader together in the Co-Chairman roles.

The pandemic has hit this community hard and those who were having issues before have had an even more difficult time. Vann talked how United Way is addressing those issues through its programs.
