D&D Debut In Mornings At WCSX: JEFF DEMINSKI and BILL DOYLE officially returned from exile at the stroke of midnight JANUARY 1st, and TODAY (1/5) marked the debut of their show on GREATER MEDIA Classic Rock WCSX/DETROIT. DEMINSKI and DOYLE, who spent 8 years in afternoons on crosstown CBS RADIO Talk WKRK (LIVE 97.1 FREE FM) and briefly moved to mornings there when the station flipped to Sports as WXYT-F (97.1 THE TICKET), were off the air for a year sitting out a noncompete after failing to reach an agreement on a new deal with CBS. The hosts, who came to DETROIT from Talk WKXW (NEW JERSEY 101.5)/TRENTON, popped on the air live at midnight NEW YEAR'S EVE from a WCSX party at SNOOKERS in UTICA, MI to celebrate the end of their noncompete. TODAY's launch of the WCSX show reunited D&D with sidekick RUDY DESANTIS and traffic reporter NICOLE SALEM; FOX O&O WJBK-TV (FOX 2)/DETROIT reporter JASON CARR, a frequent guest on the show at its old location, has joined the show as sports anchor.
