About Us

About The ’Gander

Through original, on-the-ground reporting, and human-focused storytelling, we strive to cover the issues and forces that shape the lives and livelihoods of all Michiganders. We pay particular attention to policy-making and social issues at the federal, state, and local levels and their real-life impacts on our readers. 
Facts and first-hand sources are our north star, and we work to expose misinformation in all its forms. We believe the key to a strong democracy is an informed electorate and that the decline of local news around the country has adversely affected civic engagement. We are investing in local journalism and storytelling that is thoughtful, informative, and meaningful.
