ABOUT ROUTE BAY CITY
Route tells the story of an evolving Bay County Region. In each weekly publication, we chronicle the investment, innovation, and development of unique assets that are attracting new talent to the region and shaping the county’s future.
The community-based publication will feature the work of local and regional writers, journalists, and photographers, engaging both local and out-of-town readers in the evolving culture of mid-Michigan. Phil Eich leads the publication. Through writing, photography, and videography, the goal of his work is to show there remains a place for storytelling and human connection.
Route is a weekly publication and email newsletter featuring stories about bold startups, emerging places, catalytic talent, transformative projects, and ideas across the region. The publication joins Issue Media Group’s growing network of partner cities in its statewide Second Wave publication, which is focused on growth and innovation across Michigan.
