Detroit Public TV and the Detroit Regional Chamber: Details On 2017 Mackinac Policy Conference Access

Last Updated by Cheryl Spitale Jones on

For the seventh consecutive year, the Detroit Regional Chamber and Detroit Public Television (DPTV) will collaborate to provide Michigan citizens with the highest level of access to the Mackinac Policy Conference’s content.

Since 2011, the Chamber and DPTV have worked together to significantly broaden access to the event.  We've grown to 20,000 unique audience members watching at least some part of DPTV’s Mackinac Policy Conference coverage via computers, phones and tablets during and immediately after the event.

All content, including livestreams, will also be offered, at no cost, to any public or commercial broadcast outlet, as well as all other news organizations in Michigan, to continue to make coverage of the Conference as accessible as possible.

DPTV plans to broadcast and/or webcast:

  • Streaming coverage of virtually every Conference session (with the exception of those not allowed under speaker contracts), featuring keynote addresses and panel discussions.
  • A daily half-hour recap of Conference activity at 7:30 p.m. on TV.
  • Live and recorded interviews with speakers, Conference participants and analysts.
  • Facebook Live video will add bonus video to the stream.  

DPTV coverage will be anchored by Christy McDonald, with analysis from Detroit Free Press Pulitzer Prize-winning Editorial Page Editor Stephen Henderson and Detroit News Editorial Page Editor Nolan Finley.

News organizations may access the embed code required to run the coverage on their own websites via:
