Daily Detroit pushes Detroit’s conversation forward by sharing what to know and where to go in the Detroit region.

Founded in 2014 as a blog, the project evolved over time to include not just where to go around town, but to cover the issues and topics important to our community.

The first version was built on the stage at Nancy Whiskey’s in Detroit’s Corktown. Over the last five years we have reached millions of people through our website, not including our social media platforms.

Our primary focus is now our daily podcast. We report and talk about Detroit’s news, people, voices, places, things to do, events, food and bar scene, development, culture, history and quirks that make us uniquely Detroit.

Our reporting zone is the tri-county area. That’s defined as Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. We also are interested in stories in Michigan and those having ties to our region.

We believe in Detroit’s motto: Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus – We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.
