Metro Detroit: Newsmakers July 2, 2010




Detroit Free Press:

Motor City media personality Jay Towers is adding a new stop to his busy commute: Starting July 12 he'll launch a new morning radio show on WNIC-FM (100.3). Towers, with co-host Renee Vitale, will power up Detroit commuters from 5:30-10 a.m. He'll also serve as program director for WDTW-FM (106.7, the Beat), a sister station in Clear Channel's Detroit radio cluster, Clear Channel announced today. Clear Channel Detroit, which runs WNIC, also oversees WKQI-FM (95.5), WJLB-FM (97.9), WMXD-FM (92.3), WDFN-AM (1130), and WDTW-AM (1310). "The morning show is going to be a mix of what's going on in Detroit and feature all kinds of lifestyle and entertainment news and music," Towers told the Free Press today. "We're going to keep it fresh and moving; it's not going to sound like anything else." Towers, who announced his departure from WXYT-FM (97.1, the Ticket) in January to become national talent and programming consultant for Clear Channel Radio, will still hold that role, too...
