MSU’s Communication Arts and Sciences and WKAR have teamed up in developing a mobile phone app [EMPOWERFLINT.org] which delivers helpful information to Flint area residents affected by water quality due to the April 2014 switch to using the Flint River as source water for the water system.
WKAR’s Current State program talks with two people involved in the creation of the app. Brian Winn is an Associate Professor in the Department of Media and Information at MSU’s college of Communication Arts and Sciences. Susi Elkins is the station manager of WKAR-TV.
