The Michigan Association of Broadcasters works hard to establish strong relationships with lawmakers in our state to ensure policies allow broadcasting in Michigan to stay impactful and to protect us against those that may hinder us from doing our jobs effectively.
On May 12, the Michigan Association of Broadcasters is hosting our annual Capitol Day in Lansing. This is a chance for us to connect with members of the state legislature and their staff to discuss the issues that are important to local TV and radio.
Last week, students from Michigan State University’s Impact89 Radio and Focal Point TV helped the MAB pass out Capitol Day invitations to lawmakers around the Capitol.
It was an opportunity for the students – all of whom were part of this year’s MAB Student Awards College Stations of the Year – to see the Capitol and it allowed lawmakers and their staff to meet the future of the industry.
Thanks to MSU’s staff including Bob Gould and Jeremy Whiting for helping coordinate the event.
