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.

Webinar: Election Coverage down the backstretch: Get off the track!

May 16, 2024
1-2 p.m. Eastern

With host Kevin Benz of I-Media Strategies.  The 2024 elections are testing journalists as never before as truth takes a backseat to self-interest and polarization makes neutral coverage almost impossible. How do we cover candidates who treat truth as a convenience and voters who look for agreement over clarity. This session will take political polarization head on, giving real options for journalists interested in telling the truth over talking points. We will also look at specific coverage examples that take coverage away from the horse race and focus on the candidate.
