The MAB and MAPB are happy to provide its members with coverage of the Gubernatorial Inauguration on January 1, 2019 with a live broadcast from 11 a.m. to Noon.

It is vital that in the first few days of the new administration we demonstrate the power and popularity of broadcast media. Airing the Inauguration program has been a great way to demonstrate this power.

Governor-Elect Gretchen Whitmer

The broadcast will be hosted by Vincent Duffy and Zoe Clark of Michigan Public Radio. Vincent is a former local market anchor and Zoe has done numerous appearances on television, appearing regularly on Tim Skubick’s “Off The Record” TV program. The production of the broadcast is being handled by Detroit Public Television and is underwritten, in part, by AT&T Michigan.  The production of the broadcast is being handled by Detroit Public Television. It will be closed-captioned and up-linked on Galaxy 17 as well as through a PBS transponder on AMC 21. Exact technical details are forthcoming and will be sent to you no later than December 20 .

The MAB also is making the program available for radio, and we encourage news/talk  and other stations to carry it. We will provide an Internet feed, but stations are also free to use the audio from their local public television station.   Affiliates of the Michigan Public Radio Network will be able to receive the broadcast through NPR’s Content Depot.

We will also provide all stations (TV and Radio) with an embed code of the television broadcast for their website.

The MAB will be providing more information, including detailed technical information in the days to come.  Stations that may have immediate questions may contact the MAB’s Dan Kelley at 517-484-7444 or [email protected].
