On the Sunday, Dec. 14 edition of “Access Indy,” you heard leaders from various sectors of Indiana business weigh in on the impact of business and philanthropic leader William “Bill” Mays’ life and legacy. The founder/CEO of Mays Chemical Company and owner/publisher of The Indianapolis Recorder died on his birthday, Dec. 4, at the age of 69. Mays’ funeral services were held on Friday, the 12th bringing out a diverse cross-section of the Hoosier diaspora and international business community to pay tribute.
On the show, I played clips of interviews with former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels and Entertainment Entrepreneur Geno Shelton that aired on our sister station, AM-1310 The Light’s, “Afternoons With Amos.” Host, Amos Brown talked with many leaders and business people (in addition to Daniels and Shelton) that interacted with Mays on various levels over the years.
I also sat down with the former editor-in-chief and publisher of The Indianapolis Recorder, Eunice Trotter, on Mays’ impact on media.
