John Bebow is president and CEO of The Center for Michigan and Bridge Michigan
I’m John Bebow, the President and CEO of Bridge Michigan, and I wanted to take a moment to explain what makes our organization unique. At Bridge we're committed to producing high quality, independent journalism about issues that matter to the people of our state.
- Bridge Magazine becomes Bridge Michigan to reflect mission, ambitions
- Bridge wins 20 awards from Society of Professional Journalists Detroit chapter
- Deepest gratitude from the Bridge team to you
Take, for example, our story which broke the news that the state of Michigan was not informing families when an outbreak of COVID-19 took place at their child’s school. Bridge led the charge with numerous media partners for the state to release this information, which the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services agreed to do just days after Bridge published its story.
Without the generosity of people just like you, this story might never have been told. And in today’s climate of misinformation, that’s a worst-case scenario for democracy.
