Ryan Felton goes solo


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.
