The Detroit Broadcasting Company – an agent for positive social change.
Creating media for the people, by the people, The Detroit Broadcasting Company (DBC) is a socially conscious for-profit company that is 100% owned and controlled by its employees–grass roots nonprofits, and people from the communities that DBC reaches and serves. DBC serves the community through producing internet based television programming including a Detroit based sitcom, a cooking show hosted by Detroit youth and a talk show that features people from Detroit who impact our politics, culture, and society. The talk show, the first program in production, completed its first season this year and is available to view online at: https://detroitbroadcasting.wordpress.com/tonightthecaid/.
The company’s goals are guided by the mission, values and vision of the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit, its founding non-profit member. The purpose of DBC is to create positive social change in Detroit through media.
There are currently five programs either already in production or in the planning phases of production. These programs are Tonight@theCAID, Detroit’s World Kitchen, Lambert Street, New Newsstand for New News, and The Anchor Room. (Please refer to the more detailed descriptions of the 5 program
