This year marks the 32nd year of honoring Michigan’s public broadcasters with the MAPB Public Media Impact Award.
Two awards will be presented – one award for Donors and one award for Professionals – for their contribution to public broadcasting in Michigan. The awards will be presented at the Annual Awards Banquet as part of the August 2017 Advocacy Conference & Annual Meeting at Crystal Mountain Resort in Thompsonville, MI, which is attended by owners and operators of broadcast stations, lawmakers and other dignitaries.
- To recognize outstanding individuals involved in public broadcasting for their innovation and creativity.
