Fifteen Years Brings Change, Expansion for The Michigan Banner

The phrase ‘it takes a village’ may be cliché’ but it is true. It takes a village to building a community.

It takes a village to help that community continue the path of economic development and success, productivity and sustaining an overall healthy quality of life for those in that village.

With that being said, it takes a village to create, develop and to push continued growth of a product that has given Michigan diverse, impactful, educational and inspirational news for 15 years.

As editor-in-chief of The Michigan Banner I am proud to be part of that village. It is a privilege to be able to contribute, help grow, expand and develop a product that has such strong ties throughout not just the Great Lakes Bay Region but throughout the Michigan community.

Myself, along with Jerome Buckley, publisher of The Michigan Banner, bring 31 years of combined industry experience.

As editor-in-chief, I will oversee the content and daily operations of both The Michigan Banner and

The Michigan Banner celebrated its 15-year anniversary on July 5, 2017. With the start of the 15th year, we rebirthed our website, added new members to the family including a marketing and sales team and our editorial staff.

We are evolving as the news industry changes and with that we will give readers more by expanding our reach throughout the state of Michigan and providing more original content, looking at issues that impact people throughout the state and occasionally touching on national and world issues as we continue to grow.

This year marks the beginning for new strides and accomplishments for The Michigan Banner.

I look forward to working with the Michigan community to continue bringing impactful, inspiring and empowering news as the team at The Michigan Banner embarks on a new journey.

Thank you for all of your support the last 15 years.

Yours truly,

Jiquanda Johnson
