Former CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WRVA-A/RICHMOND afternoon host and WLW-A/CINCINNATI midday host DOC THOMPSON has landed at CBS RADIO Talk WXYT-A/DETROIT for 3-6p (ET), starting MONDAY (3/12). THOMPSON's arrival bumps the syndicated TODD SCHNITT show to 6-9p.
"DETROIT has (a) history of great radio and I'm very excited to be part of it," said THOMPSON. "We are living in stressful times and the news can be pretty depressing. I offer a unique and compelling viewpoint with lots of humor and fun."
"DOC is a great talent and we're excited to have him live and local in afternoon drive talking about the issues affecting DETROIT, southeast MICHIGAN, and the rest of the country. DOC's brand of entertaining and informative Talk radio will be exactly what rush hour listeners need to get through their afternoon drive," said WXYT PD RONA DANZIGER. "TODD SCHNITT, one of the hottest syndicated talents in the business, will immediately follow DOC. This is a powerful one-two punch as we grow TALK RADIO 1270's conservative brand of talk in DETROIT."
SVP/Market Manager DEBBIE KENYON added, "This is a critical election year, and we're thrilled to add a big talent like DOC THOMPSON to our lineup to talk about it. People can now drive to work with CLARLIE LANGTON and drive home with DOC for the most informative and interesting takes on the issues affecting metro DETROIT. He's an amazing addition to a strong lineup."
