Newspapers


The Michigan Essay and Impartial Observer, which briefly appeared in Detroit in 1809, was the territory’s first newspaper. With the appearance in 1817 of the Detroit Gazette, Michigan had its first regularly published paper. In 2002 the state was served by 390 newspapers, of which 52 were dailies. Influential newspapers in the state include the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit News, the Flint Journal, the Grand Rapids Press, the Oakland Press (Pontiac), and the Lansing State Journal.

The Detroit News operated the state’s first radio station in 1920. In 1924 Michigan State University started the first college radio station in the country. Michigan’s first commercial television station was WWJ-TV in Detroit, which began regular broadcasts in 1947. In 2002 the state was served by 117 AM and 179 FM radio stations and 42 television stations. "Michigan" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
