Detroit News:

What did Ted "the Bear" Richards miss the most during the 16 years he was gone from Detroit? That's easy: Detroit baseball. "I was here when they won it all in 1984," says Richards, WOMC-FM (104.3 )'s new afternoon host. The faint Southern lilt in his voice from his native South Carolina can still be heard, even after his years as a jock at the legendary Detroit/Windsor station CKLW , delivering rapid-fire patter on his top-rated nighttime show (his CK years spanned from 1972 to 1985). Richards was named Jock of the Year by People magazine in 1979. Today, to celebrate the arrival of Detroit Tigers pitchers and catchers at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla., sometime between 5 and 6 p.m., Richards will run part of an interview he did with Tigers' Hall of Fame announcer Ernie Harwell. What else did Richards miss about Detroit? Married to a former CKLW "hitline girl," Nancy, he's glad to be near his in-laws in Windsor. And: "The coney islands on Lafayette Boulevard, going to concerts at Cobo Hall, fishing in the river and catching three-eyed fish"... WOMC's 'The Bear' Richards celebrates Detroit Tigers players (Thu, 2/14)



Detroit Free Press:

WRIF-FM (101.1) and DJ Screamin' Scott Randall have assembled a fun way to make some money for two families in need. It's WRIF's first annual Super Rock 'n' Bowl, set for noon-2 a.m. Sunday at the Premier Lanes in Chesterfield Township. With help from Team Jacob (a group of folks who help raise money for charity) and the graciousness of musicians from the local scene, the much-ballyhooed event will pit teams of bands, bars and groupies in a west side-vs.-east side bowling event for charity.

As Detroit Public Television continues making structural improvements to its Wixom facility, a new face was added to the internal line-up. Ritschard Homberg, former vice president and general manager of WWJ Newsradio (Channel 950) was named president and general manager of Detroit Public Television earlier this month ... In 2005, Detroit Public Television purchased the Wixom facility from former Clover Technologies. In order to raise funds to relocate the locally owned and operated broadcasting center, a capital campaign was launched with an overall goal of $22 million. Relying on donations has required renovations of the 93,000-square-foot building to be done in phases. The facility is currently undergoing construction of the master control room and editing rooms, which is slated for completion in May... Changes continue at Detroit Public TV's Wixom facility (Thu, 2/14)
