A Report To Our Community In these pages, you’ll see that it’s been a busy year for Detroit Public Television. Many productions were shot, connections made, partnerships strengthened, minds opened and lives touched. Our production truck and crews are gaining a reputation throughout the region for covering important events; our fundraising productions are raising millions of dollars for PBS stations nationwide; our success with WRCJ 90.9 FM and broadcasts of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Michigan Opera Theatre promote arts and culture; and… we’re just getting started.

We believe Public Media can foster positive changes in local communities.

That’s why we are relentlessly committed to a plan of “Engage, Focus, Create and Sustain.” We engage and partner with members of the community – at every level We focus on issues important to our citizens We create content using all the tools of public media We sustain by connecting to wider audiences and delivering value for our partners Further, we believe in C.O.P.E. – “Create Once; Publish Everywhere.” We create content that informs, inspires, or entertains, and then distribute it widely, free of charge, without “branding” it Detroit Public TV.

We get around — broadcasting from anywhere is key to DPTV’s service, from MiVote Mackinac on the island to our new Midtown studio on the Wayne State Campus.




In Midtown Detroit

In March, DPTV partnered with Wayne State University to reopen a TV studio in the historic Maccabees building on Woodward Avenue. Once home to “The Soupy Sales Show” and other classic Detroit TV shows, the newly renovated space is used to tape episodes of Leaders on Leadership, and certain episodes of American Black Journal, and Am I Right?

At the Riley Broadcast Center

If you haven’t visited our main facility in Wixom, we invite you to do so. Named for lead benefactors George and Dolores Riley, the spacious building boasts three studios: The Bill & Patsy Smith Studio; the Ford Motor Company Studio; and the Boll Family Studio. Now, with the completion of the Susan Cooper Studio Control Room to join four busy edit rooms, all endowed by our patrons, and spacious meeting facilities, the Riley Broadcast Center is fast becoming the production center of choice in Southeast Michigan.



Through Detroit Public Television and WRCJ 90.9 FM, we help people access, understand and enjoy art. We partner with others to help arts organizations be more effective. Detroit Symphony Orchestra

When the DSO returned in April 2011 after a six-month strike, 2,000 people were in Orchestra Hall to see them perform. But thanks to broadcasts and a webcast by DPTV and WRCJ-FM, more than 60,000 worldwide were able to hear the concert. Such is the power of public media. Other collaborations with the DSO included: Live radio broadcasts and DPTV-produced webcasts of DSO concerts Radio broadcasts of concerts by DSO youth ensembles Episodes of DSO Unmasked to give listeners a greater understanding of DSO music and musicians

Michigan Opera Theatre


This year WRCJ broadcast live all four operas presented by The Michigan Opera Theatre. Each was preceded by an episode of MOT Unmasked, exploring the music and story within the opera. DPTV welcomed MOT representatives to the studios for a special challenge grant from Masco Corporation around La Boheme.

Sphinx Organization

In February 2011, DPTV and WRCJ both broadcast the annual Sphinx Finals Concert, showcasing young Black and Latino classical music string players. In addition, WRCJ produced seven episodes of Sphinx Journeys, hosted by Aaron Dworkin, to explore classical music by Black and Latino composers.

“DPTV’s coverage of the conference engaged more citizens than ever in meaningful discussions about Michigan’s future, making DPTV an ideal partner for the Chamber’s problem-solving platform.” Sandy K. Baruah,

President and CEO, Detroit Regional Chamber

MiVote Mackinac

In June 2011, 1,500 Michigan leaders gathered on Mackinac Island for The Detroit Regional Chamber’s annual policy conference, but this year was different. Thanks to Detroit Public TV and its production truck, the conference doors were opened to thousands of people worldwide via 23 hours of live coverage. The video was used by every Detroit-area media provider and picked up by national media such as CNBC, Bloomberg and American Public Media. Online, 42,000 unique computers were used to watch the live stream, which was carried on 60 websites. Many more commented on social networks Twitter and Facebook. The result was a stunning success and model for new public media.

The Smith Studio at Detroit Public TV’s Riley Broadcast Center was the location of the only televised gubernatorial debate between candidates Rick Snyder and Virg Bernero in 2010. DPTV provided video to more than 600,000 viewers statewide. In our ongoing effort to inform citizens on important issues, we also videotaped more than 200 interviews and broadcast debates with candidates for state Senate and

DPTV and WRCJ …and you, together we’re making a difference.

Dear WTVS, As a long-time supporter and watcher of WTVS, I thank you for showing three hours of Zen, the Masterpiece Mystery. It is fabulous!!! Thanks, – Mary


Dear WRCJ, Our family owns a dance apparel business in Canton…and we play your station during the day since much of the music is associated with ballet. Last spring, I heard you announce a children’s jazz band performance happening that weekend. I decided to take our kids to see it, just to provide them with an enriching and possibly inspiring experience. We noticed audition information on the tables and took some info home. Our twelve-year-old son who plays percussion ended up auditioning for the (DSO Civic) Sinfonia. He made the cut and has been rehearsing every Saturday morning at Orchestra Hall, all the way from Brighton. Last night, our son Trey had to support Trey and the arts in Detroit. We were so proud, not only of our son, but of the skill level of all the young musicians! What a great program. Now, my eleven year old niece is thinking of auditioning for next year. So you know what? I’m glad I listen to your radio station!! – Aimee LeMay 13. 00.

“Doing things differently in Michigan starts with doing things differently at the Mackinac Policy Conference, which was engr ained in every decision we made.The partners hip with Detroit Public Television removed the veil of the Conference and provided accessibi lity for all Michiganians. Our partnership with DPTV also led to greater and more real-time medi a coverage of the Conference. The partnership with DPTV was essential in our move to position the 2011 Conference as a state-wide event. Through its MiVote. org project, DPTV’s coverage of the Conference engaged more citizens than ever in meaningful discussions about Michigan’s futur e, making DPTV an ideal partner for the Chamber’s problem-solving platform.” – Detroit Regional Cham ber President and CEO Sandy K.

I loved answering the pledge phones for the Johnny Reid Live event! Callers who knew him and thos e who had never seen him befo re were energized by his music. All of them wanted more. This sup port s my theory about DPTV: Many prog rams are reviewed; only the best are chosen. On behalf of the call ers on January 8, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You DPT V” for sharing Johnny Reid . You changed a cold and dreary evening into a night of fun! – Josie Taje r
