Creating media for the people, by the people, The Detroit Broadcasting Company (DBC) is a socially conscious for-profit company that is 100% owned and controlled by its employees–grass roots nonprofits, and people from the communities that DBC reaches and serves. DBC serves the community through producing internet based television programming including a Detroit based sitcom, a cooking show hosted by Detroit youth and a talk show that features people from Detroit who impact our politics, culture, and society.
The company’s goals are guided by the mission, values and vision of the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID), its founding non-profit member. There are currently five programs either already in production or in the planning phases of production. These programs are Tonight @ the CAID, Detroit’s World Kitchen, Lambert Street, New Newsstand for New News, and The Anchor Room.
