Amanda Rahn

Amanda Rahn is excited to be an editorial intern for Hour Detroit. She has interned at BLAC and Metro Parent magazine, and is the Arts and Entertainment editor for Wayne State University’s school newspaper, The South End. Now in her last semester, she’s a member of the Irvin D. Reid Honors College, the Journalism Institute for Media Diversity, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and was a 2016 recipient of the Society of Professional Journalists’ Larry Laurain Scholarship. She’s interviewed everyone from political prisoners and movie stars to child archery prodigies, and believes every story is interesting (so long as you ask the right questions). Find her at Wednesday night trivia at Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Co., confidently telling teammates incorrect answers.

 

Cybelle Codish

For this month’s feature on Dally in the Alley, photographer Cybelle Codish revisited one of her favorite festivals of all time. “I’ve been going to Dally for as long as I can remember, shooting bands, eating amazing food, and having a great time with friends. I haven’t been in a few years, and to see it grow and elevate on all fronts is so exciting.” Codish’s first paying gig after moving back from Chicago was photographing a band at Dally, so her love of this festival runs deep. When she isn’t indulging in food-truck fare and listening to live music, she can be found traveling on assignment around the globe in search of beautiful humanistic stories to be told, or, documenting the ever adorable lives of her giant dog babes Ursa Major Money & Johnny Cash Money

 

Jim McFarlin

Jim McFarlin, who penned the feature on Detroit-born songwriter Allee Willis, is a West Michigan native who still calls Detroit his adopted home despite working as a full-time writer outside Chicago for nearly a decade. A former pop music critic and entertainment writer for The Detroit News, McFarlin has been a frequent contributor to Hour Detroit for 15 years and reviews movies “Live at 5” Fridays on 910AM Superstation. “You don’t often get to spend a day in the presence of genius,” McFarlin says of his interview with Willis. “Her songs have sold 60 million copies. That’s approaching Smokey-Seger-Stevie territory.
Yet she’s never learned to play or read music. She’s pure creativity.”

 

Chuck Bennett

Chuck Bennett’s life is consumed in style and fashion, and he regularly shares those experiences at The Detroit News (weekly column), Fox 2 News (Style Ambassador), 910AM Superstation (weekly radio show), and his own website, thesocialmetro.com. This lifestyle sees him attending parties, galas, grand openings, and restaurants on a regular basis. The folks at salonnierre.com, a website dedicated to entertaining, have named Bennett one of the top 100 party hosts in the country for two years in a row. Annually, with advice from local fashion experts and the style team at Hour Detroit, he names Metro Detroit’s Best Dressed. This year’s list is an assortment of men and women from different lifestyles who always show up sartorially correct.
