NASH FM 93-1 Detroit adding local midday show in May

Cumulus Media/Detroit Country WDRQ-FM (NASH FM 93.1) has announced that Lauren Crocker will take over the station's midday slot (10 a.m. - 3 p.m.) starting May 19th. The program will be hosted locally from Cumulus/Detroit's studios in the Fisher Building.

Crocker is currently the midday host and Music Director at Hot Adult Contemporary WWZY Monmouth-Ocean NJ and the move to Detroit will reunite her with recently hired NASH 93-1 Program Director and afternoon drive host Robby Bridges - for whom she did mornings when he programmed Adult Contemporary WFAS Westchester, NY. Her previous experience also includes CHR WBBO on the Jersey Shore and WKTU/New York.

In a release Crocker stated, "I am beyond excited and honored to be back in the Cumulus family and reunited with the extremely talented Robby Bridges! Joining a power house like NASH FM 93.1 at this stage in my career is a dream come true and I am still pinching myself! I am ready to make the Motor City, my city!"



Fine Tuning:

  • Midland's WLUN-FM (ESPN 100.9-FM) has moved the Huge Show with Bill Simonson into the 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. time slot as of yesterday. The statewide sports talk show program replaces CrunchTime in the ESPN 100.9-FM lineup.

  • Educational Media Foundation's WNWT AM 1520 has broken its simulcast of the company's Contemporary Christian (K-Love Radio) WNKL-FM 96.9 and changed format to the religious-based Urban Family Talk network.



Lansing State Journal: (pay site)

Most ideas that begin on a napkin, never leave the bar. They're moments of inspiration, followed by sobering realities. Time commitment, financial risk, a lost napkin -- all can be roadblocks. The Lansing United soccer franchise may or may not turn into a lasting success. But Jeremy Sampson's expansion National Premier Soccer League club, less than three weeks before its first game, is already an ode to the napkin idea.
