Home to Community-Access Media in Northwest Lower Michigan
The UpNorth Media Center is home to community-access media. We connect the face of Northwest Lower Michigan to people around the globe through the region's only public- and government-access television stations and online streaming source. Using state-of-the-art technology, we teach people how to use media to celebrate local culture, share community information, and provide educational content for the world to see.
