The number of Bald Eagles in Michigan is on the rebound, from 85 pairs in 1970 to 750 pairs today, and they can be seen in all areas of Washtenaw County. Bald Eagles were greatly endangered and facing extinction due to habitat loss, DDT (a now-banned insecticide), and hunting, but they have come back due to conservation measures.

Listen as we talk to Rachelle Roake, Conservation Science Coordinator of Michigan Audubon to discuss the comeback of bald eagles in our county, and recent University of Michigan findings that they are contaminated with flame retardants despite the phase-out of these compounds.

Former WXYZ-TV Channel 7 anchor and Detroit news legend, Bill Bonds, passed away last weekend.  WEMU remembers him as the dominant force that he was in Southeast Michigan for nearly thirty years.  Today he will be memorialized fondly as he is laid to rest.  

I had an opportunity to sit down with a longtime coworker of Mr. Bonds, Eastern Michigan University's VP for Communications Walter Kraft, to talk about his life and legacy.
