Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio

In partnership with the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB), the MAB is launching the Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio program. The goal of the program is to encourage strong female leadership in Michigan radio and enhance the value of a career in radio. Women broadcasters in positions of leadership from Michigan will provide monthly guidance to the individual who will be chosen through an application process.


Broadcast Station Site Safety Assessments

Unfortunately, media outlets and personnel have become targets of violence and harassment.  In an effort to help provide protection to broadcasters in Michigan, the MAB and Michigan State Police Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Desk are partnering to help broadcast stations ensure safety for their staff and facilities by offering Station Site Safety Assessments that will evaluate and make practical recommendations of security operations at broadcast stations and identify options for facility owners and operators to mitigate against relevant threats.


Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program

The Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP) is a unique partnership between the MAB and the FCC to ensure compliance with federal regulations and to avoid surprise inspections. Stations that pass the inspection receive a three-year Certification of Compliance.
