The Michigan Association of Broadcasters has honored WDET with 10 awards for its work in 2020, including six “Best In Category” awards – more than any other public radio station in the state.
In an unprecedented year, WDET’s reporters and producers went above and beyond to provide critical news and information, tell community stories and provide respite through our music, arts and culture programming.
Thanks to our listeners who have made these awards possible. Without your support, award-winning stories like these can’t be produced.
