Cynthia Canty is a veteran broadcaster who hosts the news, policy and culture program Stateside on Michigan Radio, a NPR affiliate that broadcasts in the Detroit area at 91.7 on the FM dial.
She’s been on air a variety of places in Detroit. She spent years as part of Jim Harper’s legendary morning show, going with him across the FM dial. Canty also was on television at WKBD-TV.
She recently announced plans to retire at the end of the year after four decades in broadcast news in Southeast Michigan.
On today’s show, me and Sven talk with Canty all about her career, how radio has changed over the years — and her thoughts on why so many people have so little trust in the news media.
