CUMULUS Talk WJR-A/DETROIT has inked morning host PAUL W. SMITH to a new 7 year deal. SMITH has been with the station since 1996.
“I’m thrilled, especially considering the length,” SMITH told CRAIN'S DETROIT. “My belief, from what I’ve heard from a number of people in our business, is that this is unheard of.”
“I like DETROIT; I made a commitment to DETROIT coming back in 1996,” continued SMITH. “The good stuff is just about to begin with the turnaround. This would be a horrible time to leave. I’m a homer; I’m a shameless homer. But if you’re on the radio in DETROIT, you better be a homer. Though even I, the optimist, was down on TUESDAY after that LIONS game.”
