Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Dec 28, 2006




Detroit News:

There's something about a new year that inevitably leads to resolution making. Starting things fresh and clean, with a new sense of purpose, somehow makes us feel more evolved. Some promises are kept, but many more are broken within the month of January alone. Call me optimistic, but I think a few resolutions and some determination to be open to change could actually make things better for everybody in the sports world... Let's clean up the airwaves (Thu 12/28)

Monroe News:

Look for some major shake-ups in Detroit sports radio in the new year. Art Regner, one of the signature voices at all-sports-talk WXYT, was fired last week in a cost-cutting move. The man whose rants are legendary was the best thing going for the station, but the size of his contract made him the most expendable. Regner was one of the original talkers when all-sports radio began in Detroit at WDFN 12 1/2 years ago. WDFN (1130-AM) and WXYT (1270-AM) are still limping along, leaving us to wonder how much longer the Detroit market can support two sports talkers... Detroit sports radio changing (Wed 12/27)
