Overview | Stories This Month | Search News Archive

Check here for recent coverage of Great Lakes issues by print, radio and television media outlets in the United States and Canada. You'll also find quick links to a large collection of the region's media sources, organized by state/province and city. The In the News section is updated weekdays by the GLIN Project Team at the Great Lakes Commission. You are welcome to submit Great Lakes-related stories by local, state/provincial or national media.

Note: You may notice broken links on some of the newspaper headlines. Many newspapers (e.g., Chicago Tribune, Detroit Free Press, etc) keep complete archives of all their stories. So even if a story is months old, these links should still work. Others, however, like the Toronto Globe and Mail and the New York Times, only archive their stories for one week or require a fee to retrieve the complete articles. So, unfortunately, many of these links in the GLIN archive become broken/irretrievable after a day, week or month. By searching the GLIN archive you will have the title and date that each article was published, however, which will enable you to request the full text directly from the newspapers if you desire.
