Metro Detroit: Newsmakers May 8, 2009




WCHB AM 1200 returning to talk format weekdays

Radio One's WCHB will drop its midday and evening Gospel music programming and restore talk programming starting Monday, May 11th. The new lineup will still be anchored by Mildred Gaddis - her "Inside Detroit" program stays anchored at 6 - 10 a.m. and will be replayed evenings from 5 - 9 p.m. In between will be Pulitzer Prize-winning Reverend Angelo Henderson (10 a,m. - 1 p.m.), followed by Reverend Al Sharpton (1 - 4 p.m.). Sharpton's show was dropped when the station made the switch to a primarily gospel format last year.

"The decision to bring Al Sharpton's show back was based upon strong feedback from the community," said Radio One VP/GM Kathy Stinehour. "WCHB is committed to continuing our tradition of bringing quality programming to the Detroit community and we feel that this move is another step in that direction."



Tigers' May 12th game shifted to Fox Sports Detroit Plus

Coverage of the Tigers is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. with Tigers Live, followed by the game at 8:00.

Game 6 of the Red Wings-Anaheim playoff series will air that night on FOX Sports Detroit with game coverage set for 10:00 p.m.
