State Rep. Holly Hughes, chair of the House Tourism and Recreation Committee, welcomed Tom Daldin and Jim Edelman from “Under the Radar,” the PBS television show that features the people, places and things that make Michigan special on Wednesay.

“There’s a power in talking to the people of Michigan,” said Edelman, “Under the Radar” producer. “There’s a change happening. This is a special time. There’s people taking chances and people investing in Michigan.”

“People will tell us ‘You’ve literally doubled my business,’” said Daldin, the show’s host. “It’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done.”

Rep. Hughes presented a state seal to the special guests and also introduced them on the House floor during Wednesday’s session.

“This was an exciting opportunity to learn about their extensive tourism experiences across our great state, the impact they’ve had on the tourism industry and how this incredible show got started,” said Hughes, of Montague. “Jim and Tom are a couple of fun guys who know what a great Michigan is to live, work and play!”
