Metro Detroit: Newsmakers July 21, 2009




Detroit News:

Detroit TV station WADL-TV is demanding that WCHB-AM (1200) morning personality Mildred Gaddis stop making what it terms "defamatory" statements in a sharply worded letter it sent Monday to Gaddis and Radio One, the owners of WCHB. The station is demanding an on-air apology, as well. Gaddis' relationship with WADL (Channel 38) was severed July 2 after WXYZ-TV's Steve Wilson reported that she charged candidates for Detroit's City Council $1,000 each to appear on her WADL series "Meet the Candidate." Candidates who did not or could not pay, were not interviewed. The series was not identified as paid block programming, which the FCC requires. Gaddis claimed it was the station's responsibility to run such a disclaimer... WADL wants Gaddis to apologize (Tue, 7/21)
