WMXD adds more syndicated programming

WMXDAdult Urban WMXD-FM, Mix 92.3, has added "The Keith Sweat Hotel" to its daily program lineup from 7 pm - midnight. Hosted by R&B singer and music producer Keith Sweat, the program originates from Atlanta and got its start yesterday by clearing on twelve stations across the country. Sweat's program is distributed by Premiere Radio Networks.

Sweat commented, "Radio is one of the reasons I wanted to be a singer, so I've always had an interest in that part of the business. And now, the timing is right for me to add something different to my legacy and to take a chance in sharing who I am on a more intimate level with those listeners checkin' into the Sweat Hotel."

The Keith Sweat Hotel is a music-intensive program with 10-12 songs an hour – R&B and slow jamz from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and today. Also featured on the show will be special guests, live in-studio musical performances, and listener confessions, apologies and dedications.

Sweat's program joins syndicated drive-time shows from Steve Harvey mornings and Michael Baisden afternoons on WMXD, leaving Frankie Darcell's 10am - 3pm show as the station's only locally-based program during the prime weekday hours of 6am - midnight.

Detroit News:

After nearly losing his life, it's amazing that broadcast journalist Bob Woodruff has maintained a sense of humor, purpose, familial obligation and the desire to continue working in his field. Today, he is a grateful man on a mission. "I feel lucky," said the Bloomfield Hills native, who is still recovering from the traumatic brain injury he suffered Jan. 29, 2006. On that day, an explosive device hit the convoy he and his cameraman, Doug Vogt, were riding in while on assignment in Iraq. Vogt received less-severe head injuries. On Monday, Woodruff held a press conference in New York to talk about his health and tonight's documentary "To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports." The ABC special combines Woodruff's own chilling story with a rage-inducing investigation of military families dealing with the debilitating injuries of their loved ones with little to no help. To plug the documentary, Woodruff will also appear today on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "The Oprah Winfrey Show"... Battling back (Tue, 2/27)
