(Novi, Mich, February 25, 2010) Novi-based Digital 10 Network is partnering with Buy Michigan Now. The pair is developing television programs to highlight Michigan companies, in order to boost the local economy. Dan Glisky, CEO of Digital 10 Network, made the announcement.

“The partnership will consist of D10TV producing a new segment entitled, ‘Buy Michigan Now.’ It will run as part of our 30-minute programming loop, which airs throughout Michigan in over 100 Secretary of State locations,” said Glisky. “We are committed to helping Michigan rebound. This new program will provide a unique platform to spotlight great Michigan companies. There is a lot of under-reported good news out there, so we want to share those stories.”

Buy Michigan Now campaign founder, Lisa Diggs, commented, “I was delighted when the team at D10TV approached me with this idea. Our campaign is all about educating Michigan residents on products and services that come from Michigan-based companies. This gives us an amazing outlet to not only educate, but to entertain people while they wait.” Diggs continued, “The more we all know, the more likely we are to support local businesses. Together we can help transform our economy, one product, one purchase, one person at a time.”

The Show

The new segment is hosted by Detroit-based television personality, Lila Lazarus. It will begin airing on April 1, 2010, across the state.  Lazarus will take audiences inside the featured businesses and showcase their products, services, and history, as well as their commitment to Michigan and their local communities.
