CBS Radio and Townsquare Media announced today the creation of the Michigan News Network (MNN), which will provide affiliated stations across the state with news, sports and other local content produced by CBS Radio stations WWJ-AM (Newsradio 950) and Sports WXYT-FM (97.1 The Ticket). MNN will debut on Tuesday, Sept. 2 on nearly 20 affiliates throughout the state, including stations in Detroit, Flint, Lansing, Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor.

As the state’s preeminent news and information source, MNN will offer top-of-the-hour broadcasts weekdays from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. and 60-second sports updates three times per day during the same time period. The CBS Radio content will be licensed by Townsquare Media, which will serve as the exclusive syndication partner and manage affiliate relationships.

“CBS Radio’s Detroit stations have served as the authoritative voice of the community for many years, establishing themselves among the market’s most credible brands and news sources,” said CBS Radio President and CEO Dan Mason. “We are excited to be working with Townsquare to distribute our award-winning programming to listeners across the entire state of Michigan, while also realizing the highest value for our content.”

“Townsquare Media has a constant focus on providing live, local and vital information to the communities we serve,” said Townsquare Media Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Steven Price. “We are thrilled to partner with CBS Radio to provide important statewide content to the residents of Michigan. The Michigan News Network will also offer a new and impactful environment for clients who want to reach Michigan consumers on a statewide basis.”
