Ryan Felton has left the building.
It is our sad duty to announce that MT
investigative reporter Ryan Felton, 26, is departing Metro Times
to pursue his journalism career as a freelancer. Felton first joined Metro Times
as an intern in 2011, covering news for the paper, and returned to these pages in 2013, writing a 6,000-word story about MDOT’s proposed $1.8 billion expansion
of I-94. He joined us as a staffer early in 2014. During his time here, his stories included Mike Ilitch’s new hockey stadium
, Dan Gilbert’s downtown empire
, the smell of Detroit’s incinerator
, and more. His work has appeared in The Guardian
and In These Times
. We wish him all the luck in the world in his future endeavors.
