The Bay City Times-MLive has moved its editorial and advertising staff to a new location in Uptown Bay City.
The Central Michigan University Research Corp. business incubator in Uptown will be home base for our continued coverage of the community and service for our business partners.
MLive Media Group President Dan Gaydou said moving to a center for entrepreneurship makes sense for the company.
“As the top media organization in our community and as digital innovators, we believe we fit in well and will make positive contributions. This also shows our continued commitment to our core communities,” Gaydou said.
The Bay City Times remains deeply committed to the people of Bay County and surrounding region. That hasn’t changed. Only the location has changed.
As digital journalists, we work from a variety of locations across the Bay City area. That will not change with the move upriver to Uptown, from offices in downtown Bay City.
The Bay City Times has been with the city since its early beginnings during the heyday of the lumber and timber industry in the 1800s.
The Times was published at a facility on Water Street for nearly two decades before it moved into a new building at Fifth and Adams downtown in early 1910. In 2014, The Times moved its editorial and sales operations back to Water Street, leasing space at the new Mill End Lofts, at Water and Third Streets. In January 2017, developers unveiled The Times Lofts luxury apartments at the old Bay City Times headquarters at Fifth and Adams.
The Bay City Times now follows to Uptown the next stage in the continuing development of our city and region.
“As a Corporate CoWork Member, MLive will have a presence throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region,” said CMURC President and CEO Erin Strang, “They will be embedded in the heart of the entrepreneurial community.”
