The MAB has sent technical information concerning television, radio and web feeds to MAB and MAPB members for its live broadcast  of the Gubernatorial Inauguration on January 1, 2019.  The program will air 11 a.m. to 11:56:46 a.m.   The technical details also include embed code for television and radio stations to put on their websites.

The technical details may also be downloaded here.  Television and radio stations that have not previously notified the MAB of their intent to air the broadcast should send an email to [email protected].  There is no charge to air the broadcast.

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.

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 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.
