TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., Sept. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MyNorth.com, Traverse, Northern Michigan's Magazine and Lick the Plate have joined forces to bring the popular show to Northern Michigan and feature the talent behind the robust culinary scene in the area. The show will be distributed via digital and social media channels, will reside on the MyNorth website and launch October 13, 2017. Northern Michigan will be the fourth market for Lick the Plate, joining San Diego, Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. Lick the Plate host David Boylan has a long history and connections in the Northern Michigan area with his family involved in cherry farming, as a longtime Great Lakes Surfer, First Mate on a corporate yacht through college, and as a judge in the Empire Asparagus Festival.
MyNorth Founder and Editor-in-Chief Deb Fellows is delighted to add Lick the Plate to the company's 37-year-history of covering the exploding Northern Michigan culinary scene though both print and digital publications. "Lick the Plate is another fabulous way for our audience of 2.4 million to engage in our region's world-class food and drink scene," she says. "The show really lets the guests' personalities shine and allows listeners to get to know their culinary influences, as well as the music that moves them, where they eat around town, and all about their restaurant or culinary endeavor. These are all elements that make up who these creative and talented folks are and our audience will love it."
Lick the Plate host David Boylan added, "This is an incredible opportunity for me to do what I love to do in an area that I adore and have a long history with. On top of that, the culinary scene here and the talent driving it is incredible. I've already featured a handful of chefs, owners, grocers, festival promoters and winemakers as part of my Summer in Northern Michigan series on 93.9 The River, so I've had a taste of it so to speak, and am really looking forward to diving in further."
