As part of a project that began nearly seven years ago, WXYZ-TV (Detroit) kicked off a series of town hall meetings this past Monday Night (4/24) in Macomb County.
The project, Detroit 2020, was created by the station as a future vision for the cities they serve. The station set out to unify, inspire and take action. As part of that effort, the station is holding a series of town hall meetings to learn what matters to their audience and to the communities they serve.
The first town hall meeting was held this past Monday night at the Wyndham Garden Sterling Heights and was free and open to the public.
“We’re going into the communities we serve to simply listen and learn from our neighbors,” said Mike Murri, vice president and general manager for WXYZ and WMYD. “We want to hear their vision for the future and how our platforms at WXYZ and WMYD can help us get there together.”
Carolyn Clifford, 7 Action News anchor, hosted the event. Chuck Stokes, WXYZ editorial director, Ross Jones, 7 Action News investigator, and Ameera David, anchor, were also on hand to join the discussion. The station featured part of the town hall meeting both on-air and on Facebook Live.
