WMUK has been recognized by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters in their annual Broadcast Excellence Awards. Earlene McMichael’s series After the Protests, What Then? won the award for best mini-documentary or series in Public Radio Group 1.

The three-part series aired in the summer after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. It featured African-American activists who wondered if white allies would continue to work with them after the protests ended. You can find the series here.

Gordon Evans became WMUK's Content Director in 2019 after more than 20 years as an anchor, host and reporter. A 1990 graduate of Michigan State, he began work at WMUK in 1996.
