Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Sept 1, 2008


Former Tigers third baseman George Kell is already in the Hall of Fame as a player. Starting Sept. 1, Tigers fans will have another chance to try to help him garner some recognition as a broadcaster. Fan balloting has begun for this year's Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasting excellence, and several current and former Tigers voices are among the names on this year's ballot. One of the longest-serving among them is Kell, whose 15-year playing career -- including seven seasons in Detroit -- set up his 37 years as a Tigers broadcaster, a tenure that lasted into the mid-'90s. Kell's broadcasting career actually began while he was still a player, as he took part in Orioles broadcasts while he was injured in 1957. A full-time career behind the microphone brought him back to Detroit in 1959, seven years after his final season in a Tigers uniform. From there, he called all but one season through 1996 as a play-by-play man, teaming up with analysts such as fellow Hall of Famer Al Kaline. Kell's broadcast career, combined with his Hall of Fame playing career, has made him a Detroit institution... Kell, others in running for Frick Award (Mon, 9/1)

MSU, WJR launch environmentally focused radio program

Michigan State University and News/Talk 760 WJR are partnering on a weekly radio program called "Greening of the Great Lakes." The radio program, heard from 7 to 8 p.m. Fridays, explores issues of sustainability in the areas of economics, environment and community. Topics range from the construction of "green" buildings to the development of energy-efficient automobiles to the creation of those biofuels that will help power autos and buildings of the future. The program's host, Kirk Heinze, has served in MSU's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources for three decades as a faculty member, a department chairperson and, most recently, as director of Agriculture and Natural Resources Communications. "We thoughtfully consider such critical issues as land use, water quality, LED (light emitting diode) lighting, alternative energy, biotechnology and organic agriculture," Heinze said. "We talk with experts who have varying perspectives on these issues, and our listeners form their own judgments based on what they hear." This program represents one more exciting, collaborative partnership between WJR and MSU -providing an educational forum focusing on issues that are important not only to those living in the Great Lakes region, but also to those living across the United States, Heinze said...

Starting Monday and continuing over the next four weeks, daytime TV viewing as you knew it is about to change. The annual shuffle of syndicated shows kicks in and for daytime diehards, it is hereby suggested that you get a new set of batteries for your TV remote. The biggest change? Arguably it's the move of doyenne of all that is good and proper, ex-con Martha Stewart. While she'll still be on at 10 a.m., she'll turn up on WJBK-TV (Channel 2) instead of her longtime spot on WXYZ-TV (Channel 7), starting Monday. That means Tyra Banks' frothy talk fest on Channel 2 will shift to noon. Montel Williams' long-running talk show is extinct, but if you gotta have the bald ex-drill instructor, WADL-TV (Channel 38) will be running encore shows of what he considers his best work, at a time to be announced. In Stewart's old spot at Channel 7 at 10 a.m., "The Doctors" debuts... Martha makes a move in daytime switch (Tue, 9/2)

Minor league baseball announcers dream of reaching the major leagues. Most don't realize their dream, spending their entire career in the minors. I had that dream when I broadcast Atlanta Cracker games in the Southern League for Wheaties. Wheaties was serious about its sponsorship of more than 90 major and minor league teams across the country. The company and its ad agency, Knox Reeves, published a monthly magazine devoted to the broadcasts. Each year it staged a national convention for all its announcers. The company sent an expert to each city, where he would listen to the Wheaties announcer and make a report to headquarters in Minneapolis. You can imagine the importance of this visit for each announcer. All of us strived to be at the top of our game for our visiting expert, whose critique might pave our way to the big leagues...

Detroit Free Press:

Will Drew Lane be returning to WRIF-FM (101.1) as its afternoon drive host? Lane's longtime rep, attorney Mike Novak, said an Internet report Friday that a Lane comeback was in the works was "fairly accurate, but it's premature because no deal has been struck. I think Drew has made no secret of his desire to get back on the air early next year." Novak was referring to a posting on, an influential radio trade Web site compiled by Tom Taylor. "It's not hard to believe that Drew would return to the place where he and former partner Mike Clark held court for so many years -- he loved 'RIF and he didn't want to leave Detroit," the Web site reported. "It's just that he was burned out from the grind of morning radio. ...So it might be -- shockingly -- Mike & Company in the morning and Drew in another daytime shift." Station general manager John Gallagher didn't respond to a request for comment Friday, but he was seen with Lane at a recent Tigers game. Heidi Raphael, Greater Media's chief spokeswoman, said Friday "there was nothing to the report"... Report of Lane's WRIF comeback is accurate, rep says (Sat, 9/13)

Last week was a busy one at Detroit Public Television, the custodian of WTVS-TV (Channel 56) and WRCJ-FM (90.9). How's this for making things happen? The Hudson Webber Foundation approved a grant of $300,000 to support the nonprofit PBS affiliate's acquisition of a high-definition, digital production truck. The grant comes as Rich Homberg, relatively new in the DPTV president and general manager chair, aims to successfully finish a $22-million capital campaign to complete its federally mandated conversion to digital technology ... Finally, Homberg was on the march with former WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) newsman Dave Manney, explaining DPTV's newest initiatives. Manney -- ex-Hour magazine editor and once a mayoral operative for Detroit's now-deposed Kwame Kilpatrick -- is now Homberg's director of program development. Foremost on their minds these days is the station's ambitious political debate project. Working with the Center for Michigan, it is serving up 20-25 debates of candidates who agreed to face off for 47 contested state House races in southeastern Michigan.
