From zero: How to build a Chinese radio station in Michigan

Print More

Jieyu started her Chinese radio station four months after she moved to Michigan from Canada in 2015. She started it all by herself and last year, she rented an office and renovated it as a radio studio.

Jieyu focused on the stories that happened in the Chinese community in Michigan, and also broadcasted news from U.S. and China to make Chinese immigrants who have American citizenship more politically involved. Besides radio and TV shows, she tried to host offline non-profit events like C4H (Cook for Homeless) and Chinese Story Time.

C4H is an event in which Chinese families can cook once per month and serve food for homeless people in Michigan. Jieyu said she wanted to help kids understand the meaning of sharing and spend quality time with their parents.
