Bridge Michigan is once again expanding its reporting staff, looking to add a third capitol reporter and a statewide education reporter, among other openings.

Bridge Michigan invites readers to join us Wednesday, September 29 for a very special Lunch Break event: a birthday party! Bridge Michigan is kicking off our 10th birthday celebration with a virtual event to mark the occasion,  honor the people who have made the last 10 years of journalism possible and look forward to the future. Please join us for this exciting event!

We’ll be joined by the Center for Michigan’s (Bridge’s nonprofit publisher) president and CEO John Bebow, founder and chairman Phil Power, project editor and senior writer Ron French, environmental reporter Kelly House, Capitol reporter Sergio Martinez-Beltran and membership director Amber DeLind. This hour-long discussion will be moderated by BridgeDetroit executive editor Stephen Henderson from 12 to 1 p.m. 

Please fill out our Lunch Break registration form to be sent a calendar invitation to the event, including the Zoom link. This registration form also includes an opportunity to submit questions for our participants. Pull up a chair, grab your party snacks and join us for this kickoff to a year of celebration.

Previous discussions have centered on racial equity in Michigan, the impact of COVID-19 on K-12 education, high water levels in the Great Lakes, the November election, readers’ COVID-19-related questions, Bridge’s coverage plans for 2021, coronavirus vaccine distribution, openness in Michigan government, COVID-19’s impact on higher education, the status of Michigan’s redistricting process,  Michigan’s recent labor pipeline struggles, the impact of climate change in our state and youth mental health.
