Q. Michigan Radio now broadcasts from five signals across the Lower Peninsula. Are there plans for additional growth? Is Michigan Radio still managed from Ann Arbor?
A. There are no current plans for additional signals. Michigan Radio broadcasts in Ann Arbor, West Michigan, Lansing, Flint, and Port Huron. (A map on the Michigan Radio “About Us” page illustrates their coverage.) The most recent addition was Lansing’s WLNZ, prompted by Lansing Community College’s decision to cease funding its own station.
Program management remains in Ann Arbor, but there are reporters and editors covering each of the regions. The programming is the same everywhere with the exception of a weekly show, “LCC Connect,” that is produced in Lansing and broadcast there only.
