What’s MiWeek all about?
It’s a weekly news/analysis show that brings you in-depth coverage of the biggest stories, people and issues facing Michigan. You’ll hear from the power brokers but you’ll also see stories about the people next door. From politics to neighborhoods to education to arts and culture, we’ll talk about it all.
Oh. So just another public affairs show?
Nope, not even close! We’re on a mission to bring you stories that you haven’t seen anywhere else on TV. And we’ll do that with ground breaking (pretty cool, huh?) partnerships that extend from non-profit groups to established, trusted media outlets. Think of us as the one show you have to watch, if you’re going to impress people at your next cocktail party.
Do you just focus on Detroit?
We adore Detroit but MiWeek goes beyond the city borders. We’ll go anywhere in the state there is a good story. Plus, we’re keeping an eye on Lansing and the hot election year. With our production capability you’ll see interviews not only locally, but nationally as well.
I’m sick of talking heads fighting about politics. Are you guys going to do that?
If there’s something to bicker about, we’ll make sure every side is covered. But we want to make sure there’s interesting and smart discussion, not just yelling from either side.
Can I get in on the conversation?
Sure! Join our discussion boards and chime in on our host and contributor blogs. We also want you to tell us what stories are most important to you. We’re always looking for audience members for our quarterly Town Hall meetings and live events, so make sure you sign up. We’ll constantly update our Facebook page (Like us!), MiWeek, plus ask real time questions on Twitter if you’re into social media. @miweek #miweek
I have a story idea. Who should I call?
You can always call us at Detroit Public TV and leave the details. But we love getting emails and that way, we can get back to you as quickly as possible!
How can you guys do this show without commercials?
We can’t do anything at Detroit Public Television without the generous support of our loyal viewers, private and corporate foundations. We need funding to continue our strong commitment to trustworthy, in depth and unique programming. If you’d like to contribute, please see our pledge page!
