The Environment Report, Michigan Public Radio
The Environment Report is a news service committed to revealing the relationship between the natural world and the everyday lives of people. This is accomplished by thoughtful and provocative explorations of the environment in a way that reaches the widest possible audience. The Environment Report was established to meet the need for better coverage of the environment by public radio stations. In 1993, a diverse group of public radio outlets began planning a regional environmental news service that would redefine environmental reporting in the Upper Midwest. National Public Radio's Living on Earth, Michigan Public Radio, and the Superior Radio Network partnered together to develop the structure for this weekly news service. The goal was to establish a news feed of high-quality environmental features that could be inserted into the local news programming of public radio stations.
