Senior News Editor & WDET Host, Morning Edition

Good journalism is important to me. It has been my profession since 1989. It has been my passion forever. It has changed a lot since my first job at WKZC-FM in Scottville, Michigan. There’s a lot more clutter since the Internet gave rise to blogs, videos, gifs, and social media. My job is to sort through it and deliver the facts and to tell compelling stories about our community and our world.   Follow @patbwdet
