WXYZ is celebrating 70 Years of 7. For 70 years, WXYZ has served the people of Southeast Michigan and covered the stories that connect, inform and strengthen its communities. “It’s an honor to look back at the past 70 years and the incredible impact WXYZ has had on this community,” said Mike Murri, WXYZ’s general manager.
WXYZ will recognize this historic milestone with an on-air and social campaign that celebrates the moments viewers remember through the years, the news events and the most memorable sports events of the past seven decades.
The project will also look ahead to the next 70 years and showcase the technology that will keep the station connected with its viewers.
On Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m., WXYZ will broadcast, 70 Years of 7, a half-hour special that explores the impact of the station on the community.
“It’s even more exciting looking to the future as WXYZ continues to evolve as a media organization and serve the community at the highest level on every platform. This station has always been about the passion of the remarkable people who work here and their dedication to deliver great story-telling with fair and balanced content on all platforms.”
