Cynthia Canty

Inspired by listening to “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition” on National Public Radio, I entered the world of broadcast journalist in December 1979. I have been on radio and television in Detroit ever since then: radio news anchor, member of morning radio teams, TV news anchor and reporter (both street/hard news reporting and feature reporting). Currently I am the host of my own talk and interview show on Michigan Radio, “Stateside with Cynthia Canty”. It is modeled after “All Things Considered” and “Talk of the Nation”, with a focus on stories and people from and about Michigan. Over my nearly 33 years in broadcasting, I have had a front-row seat for countless stories and had the pleasure of interviewing so many different people. Telling stories is what this job is all about. I love bringing stories to my listeners and viewers!?

Geoff Chiles

I have always been able to effortlessly develop a good rapport with people around me, so it comes as a natural fit that I work in public service at the AADL!  Libraries are an asset to us now more than ever, so being able to help patrons find and disseminate information and resources that we offer is very important to me.  My time is also being spent as an intern with CTN, our public-access TV station here in town.  I am providing support to their programming department, and would like to use my talents to contribute interviews with local citizens.  Finally, I have also done interviews with authors and filmmakers through MTTV, a new media company that wants to help grow the community of Highland Park, MI by staging concernts, events and festivals, with all of us providing the coverage.  Most of my work with them has been put on hold while they re-structure and move their offices.  Since graduating, I have learned to wear many hats to survive and gain experience.  My main goal is to work in sports broadcasting, and/or in athletic media relations.  Persistence and positivity are some of the hardest things to maintain, but I know that with my talent and determination, I can achieve what I want to do!

I took the position as the first web developer for AnnArbor.com because of the fantastic opportunity to be apart of a community driven project that has an amazing amount of potential.  I will be designing and implementing new features for the community to utilize.  To better allow me to do this, will be working closely with the community in the AnnArbor.com downstairs office which is open to the public.  We encourage people to walk in off the street and have a conversation with us about what Ann Arbor means to them.  I will be working in that office every week on a few designated days so that i may talk one on one with anyone who has question, comments, or concerns about the website.

I'm very excited about what AnnArbor.com will become with the help of the community.
