Michigan Radio is thrilled to welcome Detroit radio personality and Emmy Award winning news anchor Cynthia Canty to host a new local talk show. “Stateside with Cynthia Canty” will premiere on Thursday, Sept. 6. The show will feature a mix of interviews, features and listener call-in segments.
A lifelong resident of metro Detroit, Canty brings perspective to the project from 32 years of experience in Detroit radio and television. She has served as a popular radio host, television news anchor, producer, and as a general assignment, medical, and consumer reporter.
“For me, the magic of broadcast journalism has always been discovering stories to share with the audience,” said Canty. “Whether it is learning about peoples’ struggles and victories, interviewing notables in politics, business, the arts, health and science, or lighter fare such as sampling life on a local ostrich farm, I’ve loved covering the rich stories of Michigan over the years. I am excited beyond words to join the Michigan Radio team in creating Stateside to share these stories in the thoughtful, in-depth style of public radio.”
