On September 12, 2013 our local news resource will fully merge with MLive.com. President of MLive Media Group announced the move on Wednesday.
“Integrating Ann Arbor with its other media properties across the state enables MLive Media Group to leverage our unified strengths, ultimately offering readers a better news experience, both online and in print,” said Gaydou.
The future was about two years in total.
MLive Media Group purchased Ann Arbor.com in November 2011. Ann Arbor.com readers dealing with a second major ownership change in less than 32 months were comforted by the knowledge our local news resource would remain a merged but separate identity, with a primary focus on local news. Ann Arbor News namesake is scheduled to reemerge as Ann Arbor.com shuts down, then moves on MLive website starting September 12th.
Ann Arbor.com staff did their best to provide non-bias written works for the public consumption over the years since Ann Arbor News downfall. MLive.com's journalism staff primarily does the same. Especially when it comes to writing state and local political pieces.
MLive's staff places a good faith effort to present non-bias based reporting for the public-at-large unlike the Detroit Free Press or News.
Yet all is not lost.
