Metromix's inaugural Detroit Radio Battle -- the NCAA-styled elimination tournament featuring 16 of metro Detroit's top radio shows and most colorful personalities -- has a winner: 89X's Mornings with Dave and Chuck "The Freak." Netting more than 60% of the final round's tally and registering more than 25,000 votes by Metromix users throughout the tourney helped lift the CIMX-FM (88.7) morning show to the big victory.

Then to win the whole thing is just the icing on the cake of a great year for the Dave and Chuck 'the Freak' show," " Dave Hunter says to Metromix after learning of the victory.
