Introduction to Michigan News Media.

Michigan is a US state located in the Great Lakes region with a population of 10 million. Lansing is the capital of Michigan, while Detroit is its largest city and the hub of the state media. Native American tribes have lived in Michigan for thousands of years, while French and Métis explorers joined the community in the 17th century.

Conclusion

The newspapers & news websites mentioned in this article are not the full list of news publications in Michigan. Instead, they are the top ones that are in circulation. As of 2021, there are about 244 newspapers & news websites in the state. Out of which The Detroit News is the largest newspaper in terms of circulation & Record-Eagle is the smallest.

Like the other newspaper in the US & outside the country, decline in circulation & a fall in revenue from advertisements is troubling most newspapers in the state. For instance, the largest newspaper in the state, The Detroit News once boasted a circulation of more than 600,000 copies has now lost almost 3/4th of its circulation.  This is the same for the other newspapers in the county, with better internet penetration & availability of handheld devices, readers have switched to digital modes of consuming news content.

Among the newspapers, in the state, the most affected ones are the local & community newspapers that greatly relied on revenue from advertisements. The already limping industry took another serious blow with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic which led to the revenues from advertisements hitting zero. The Munising News & Alger County Shopper are two such community newspapers that were forced to shut down in 2021.

While the Media industry knows no bounds, we at MediaBuzz are working hard to provide comprehensive coverage of all the news sources. We are a team of professional writers with a knack for the trends in the world of journalism.
