February 18, 2021 – The City of Midland has launched a new audio and video podcast to talk about all things related to the upcoming Buttles Street redesign and reconstruction, with its first episode dropping today.
Produced by the MCTV Network, Word on the Street(s) is a podcast from the City of Midland that explores the future of the Buttles and Indian Corridor Improvement Project. Episodes are co-hosted by Communications Coordinator Katie Guyer and Director of Planning & Community Development Grant Murschel, with special guests including City staff, road design experts, and more. Topics will include recent updates on the project’s progress, public input opportunities, and discussions of the design and vision for the corridor moving forward.
Word on the Street(s) will be released on the third Thursday of every month on the City's YouTube channel and as an audio-only podcast on most preferred podcast platforms. Video replays are also available on MGTV-188 (Charter) and 99 (Uverse) and available on-demand on the MCTV Network’s Roku and Apple TV streaming apps. Additional special episodes may be released as the project progresses.
“We’re very excited to launch this podcast as an outside-the-box way for residents and corridor users to receive information about this initiative,” said Communications Coordinator Katie Guyer. “In the podcast, we’ll explore this project in a factual, yet more conversational manner that we hope listeners will find both interesting and refreshing.”
