Last week Deadline Detroit sat down with Charlie LeDuff at his favorite stomping ground (American Coney Island) and discussed the state of Detroit media, politics, and more.


Bless his heart, LeDuff even took some time to single out the "good people at the Metro Times" during a discussion about Detroit's best journalists.

We have an interesting relationship with LeDuff. Lee DeVito tailed him for an in-depth profile about his work as a journalist/show pony at Fox 2 and other major media outlets. At times we've been critical of him for his innate ability to integrate himself into the story, but we also featured him in our 2016 Best of Detroit issue in which our readers voted him "Best TV Journalist" in metro Detroit.
