Under the Radar Honored by Michigan Municipal League
UTR’s Tom Daldin, Jim Edelman, Eric Tremonti Receive Special Award of Merit
DETROIT, Michigan – The Michigan Municipal League honored the folks behind Under the Radar Michigan television program with a 2013 Special Award of Merit during the League’s Annual Convention on Sept. 19 in Detroit.
This fast-paced 30-minute television show’s goal is to create a dialogue about Michigan communities and build a brand that connects people to Michigan. Each week the host, Tom Daldin, explores everything from restaurants and museums to cool businesses, neighborhoods, and buildings. The show, which airs on PBS, highlights the people, places, and things that make Michigan a great place to be. Daldin received the League’s Special Award of Merit along with UTF producers Jim Edelman and Eric Tremonti.
“Under the Radar does a fantastic job of showing the creative, innovative and exciting people, places and things in Michigan. They show the fun side of placemaking,” said League CEO and Executive Director Dan Gilmartin.
About the Awards of Merit: Each year, the Michigan Municipal League recognizes and honors a select few individuals with Special Awards of Merit for outstanding contributions to Michigan communities. The merit awards are given out during the League’s annual Convention.
