Insights, Not Sound Bites: Supporting a Strong Civil Society

The Principles of Public MediaPublic broadcasting includes media outlets that operate as a public service.  Unlike commercial broadcasting, public media is non-profit and operates from donations from private citizens and businesses.

As a public media station, Michigan Radio prides itself on supporting a strong civil society.  Which are fancy words for…what?

To put it simply, we are committed to improving society by providing information that educates, enriches and strengthens.  Unlike commercial news stations, we go beyond the headlines to discuss not only the how and why of events but the ways that we can prevent the negative ones and increase the positive.

Our Mission Statement: Michigan Radio’s mission is to produce and distribute trusted content to inform, educate, and entertain people who care about the State of Michigan and the world around them.

Every level of our organization is focused on this mission from reporters to management to membership. Every decision we make is to move our mission forward.

As a corporate sponsor, your support of our mission lends your organization credibility and lets our listeners know that being a part of a strong civil society is important to you.
