Formerly D&D Publishing Inc., Stadel Media Inc. was formed in 2004. As a part owner in D&D Publishing, Dennis Stadel purchased the company in full in 2004 and changed the corporation. From that point, the goal has been to push the state of Michigan to the forefront as one of the greatest states in the country, especially in the minds of Michigan families. "Our state has so much to offer its residents. And I have formed a team of professionals, born and raised in Michigan, with the same commitment to moving one of the greatest states in the country to the front of many lines." Home is where the heart is, and we at Traverse Bay Family Magazine are focused on sharing some of the most interesting activities, families and businesses in our great state. The mission is and always will be our “Michigan first” focus. We hope you enjoy Traverse Bay FAMILY Magazine. Welcome to our family!
