Issue Media Group Honored by Michigan Municipal League

Online Publication Receives Special Award of Merit

MARQUETTE, Michigan —The Michigan Municipal League honored the Issue Media Group’s (IMG) network of online news publications with a Special Award of Merit during the League’s Annual Convention on Oct. 16 in Marquette.

IMG is a Detroit-based media company that publishes online magazines about growth, investment, and the people leading communities in the new economy in 21 regions across the U.S. and Canada. In Michigan, IMG has publications in Detroit (Model D); Metro Detroit (metromode); the Ann Arbor area (concentrate); the Lansing area (capitalgains), Grand Rapids (Rapid Growth); and Mid-Michigan, Southwestern Michigan, Northwestern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula (Second Wave).

IMG publishers, editors and reporters are also frequent co-hosts on the Michigan Municipal League’s Prosperity Agenda radio show on News/Talk 760 WJR.

“IMG covers what’s next in cities, creating new narratives that document transformation and growth,” said League CEO and Executive Director Dan Gilmartin. “If you ever hear someone say there’s nothing positive happening in Michigan, then be sure to direct them to any of the IMG media websites because reporting on the good things taking place in our state is what they do.”

About the Awards of Merit: Each year, the Michigan Municipal League recognizes and honors a select few individuals with Special Awards of Merit for outstanding contributions to Michigan communities. The merit awards are given out during the League’s annual Convention.
