It's Official: Dave And Chuck The Freak Named WRIF's New Morning Show
May 20, 2013 at 9:23 AM (PT)
The "official" word made it to the airwaves at noon, as ALL ACCESS ears in DETROIT heard GREATER MEDIA Active Rock WRIF/DETROIT PD MARK PENNINGTON say "DAVE and CHUCK THE FREAK are coming to mornings here at WRIF. We're starting a new chapter in WRIF mornings."
No strangers to the MOTOR CITY airwaves, DAVE and CHUCK THE FREAK, along with LISA WAY, have spent nearly a decade working together across the border at BELL MEDIA Alternative CIMX (89X)/WINDSOR-DETROIT (NET NEWS 11/26/12).
"WRIF has dominated morning radio in DETROIT for 20 years," said Market Manager STEVE CHESSARE. "Now, with the addition of the infamous and highly rated DAVE AND CHUCK THE FREAK SHOW, 101 WRIF-FM is positioned to continue to dominate the DETROIT morning airwaves for years to come. We are thrilled to welcome them to the GREATER MEDIA family."
"To say we're excited to start our next adventure at the legendary WRIF is a massive understatement," said DAVE HUNTER. "We look forward to reconnecting with our fans and having them be a part of the show every weekday morning."
WRIF morning duo DREW & MIKE said goodbye after 22 years last FRIDAY (NET NEWS 5/17). The morning show, along with longtime news person TRUDI DANIELS, took calls from listeners and past on-air contributors from 6-11:30a during their final show on the radio station.
