While other media outlets in West Michigan continue to cut staff and produce less and less local content every day, Townsquare Media Grand Rapids has continued to invest in our local community, local events, and local people.

The company behind local radio stations 97.9 WGRD, 98.7 WFGR, Mix 95.7, 100.5 The River and Magic 104.9  publishes more than eighty local news stories per week on average — these are all offered for free and are centered on our West Michigan community.

Townsquare employs seventeen local content creators who live and work in West Michigan. They're your neighbors, your friends, they eat at the same restaurants and go to the same local events. They cover everything from local weather, to restaurants opening/closing, to concerts coming to town, to local animals available for adoption.

We share our content through our radio stations, their websites and their free apps to keep you informed and entertained. There is no better way to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in West Michigan than to download our apps, and receive daily alerts about what's going on in our community.
