Seeking recommendation on an outside antenna with a range of 65 miles

My desire is to have the Detroit MI Stations at my Williamston MI address. My want list from Detroit is as follows;

WXYZ DT Real Channel 41 ABC,
WDIV TV Real Channel 45 NBC,
WWJ TV Real Channel 44 CBS,

What antenna would you recommend. I am willing to pay the price for a quality connect so I would prefer quality and range as first priority and price as the last consideration. This is all Greek to me so I do appreciate your wisdom and experience.

The Detroit stations that you want can't be received at your location. There are two stations on the same channels that are stronger and one on an adjacent channel that's too strong.

Tower Guy, I appreciate your response and expertise and would like to ask you a specific question. What channels can I get if any from Detroit at my location in Williamston MI.

Tower Guy is correct. The only channels you have even a remote chance of getting from Detroit, with special equipment, are:
WMYD MyN
WKBD CW
WPXD ION

and the reception would probably not be "quality."
