Interlochen Public Radio’s IPR News has announced that it is launching a new weekly show called Points North.  The program is a 10-minute segment where listeners explore northern Michigan through the news, the people and places.

The show will blend traditional hard news stories about the issues that are important to you with segments about the region and its people.  News Director Morgan Springer said, “You’ll hear things that are important to you like the opioid epidemic and you’ll also meet interesting characters like someone who makes clothes out of fur, maybe you’ll hear a recipe or commentary on Northern Michigan.”

Points North will air twice on Friday Mornings beginning February 22 and will also be available on the web and as a podcast.
