The Michigan Radio site is very cool and its functionality is excellent for Michigan residents. Its a fantastic news and information source in a simple, easy to understand format. It has so news articles and voice commentary that make it accessible to anyone, no matter their choice of reading or listening. The best part seems to be that it is a full time radio station across the state of Michigan, yet anything that someone misses live on air or if someone wants more information can be found online. Those who report the stories choose topics that affect the lives of Michigan citizens. Many of the stories have an emotional element that truly ties the listener/reader to the topic of the conversation. As a public radio station, the primary goal of Michigan Radio is public service and delivering “news stories that affect our lives as citizens of Michigan, and helping our listeners better understand their state, nation and world” according to its website. I found it really cool that Michigan Radio was founded and is still financially supported by the University of Michigan. Its also interesting that it is an NPR affiliate, which helps give them a trustworthy and reliable reputation.
