Samuelsen to return to the air; Rome's slot expands
A couple quick notes for sports radio fans in Detroit- Jamie Samuelsen will be joining Deminski & Doyle's morning show (6-9am) on classic rock WCSX-FM, taking over as sports anchor for Jason Carr who's been tasked with extra responsibilities at Fox 2 as that station expands its morning news program and is leaving 'CSX. Samuelsen, who had been part of the ensemble morning show at Greater Media sister station WRIF-FM prior to the return of Drew Lane, remained with the company and will no doubt be excited to get back on the air starting Monday, Sept 14th.
Looks like some second thoughts were heard about how the midday Jim Rome program was going to be first dropped and then trimmed on renewed local WDFN AM 1130. After the station first announced that the program was being dropped, it relented and added the who back, minus the 2-3pm hour. That lasted all of about a day and Rome is now heard in its entirety from noon-3pm.
